    Hey all,

    I run a nature IG account with a following of about 50k. However, recently I've seen my engagement, both views and likes, for videos drop dramatically. I would average about 30k views in the first 24 hours then end up with about 50k-100k in views in about a week. That was a month ago but now I'm lucky to get 6k views in the first 24 hours then end up with 10k views in the week.

    My engagement for photos has also dropped but only by about 25%.

    All the videos I post are ones I see go viral for other accounts after I post them but brings in nothing for me. Does anyone know why this might be the case or how I can get back that 50k engagement?

    Cheers!

    I'm shooting in the dark here but could it be shadow ban? Did you check for that?

    You know I checked that on https://shadowban.azurewebsites.net/ a week ago and just now and both times I was fine, but I've just created a new account and I can't find my posts anywhere *bugger*.

    Is there a more definitive test I can do?

    What are my options now?

    Cheers!

    Well it is the IG algorithm bro! The best thing is to have good engagement and post daily!

    I do post daily, sometimes twice a day.

    I also had great engagement, 10-15% of my followers were liking pics, my video views were through the roof... then the shadow ban.

    I did receive a "Your post has been removed" notification yesterday. I repost and tag the photographer but maybe someone wasn't happy about this... could this have sparked my downfall?
