    Likes on my account dropped from 120 on average to average 40. I'm using the same picture quality, same hashtags, posting 5 pictures a day, have more followers than before, but still have 3 times less likes in last 2 days. It seems that all almost the likes coming from the followers.

    What could be reason?

    I noticed the same, I also notice that you can't add a crazy amount of tags to posts anymore.

    Maybe the new update?

    I've also noticed a drop.. I usually go back and re-edit and add another 30 #'s but i havent actually checked if this is still working or not.

    Many of us have been experiencing this. I just keep experimenting with my posts, hashtags, time, etc.

    It would not be surprising if Instagram is going the Facebook way (it's the same company after all). It was actually a matter of time. The problem is very likely to worsen over time.

    I don't use more than 10 hashtags per post, I post once every 3 days to increase my likes/post average. My last post has gotten less likes than the posts I made before. I also noticed that my followback ratio has decreased in the past few days. Not sure what is going on...
