    Hey Guys
    I own an IG from June 2016 badly sadly i stopped working on it on August 2016 after hitting around 5K
    SO the problem that switched to business profile and start posting and follow/unfollow

    But
    after following around 190 peoples i get around 4 on return and i used to get 30+
    and posts was having 120+ likes and now around 30 -_- but never mind about likes ...

    What happened to to my follow back rate guys ?

    switched to business profile

    I think this is reason why your engagement is down , people say that when switching to business account Instagram lower the engagement in purpose to force you spend money on ads

    If you are not active your engagement will drop ofcourse. Pretty logical.

    @Ksi Pax @neilbhabuta @HisokaMorow
    Actually my problem is not with engagement but with the low follow back ratio !
    Follow back ration was 15%-20% But now it's around 5% :(

    Well Facebook bought Instagram so of course your reach is going to suffer.

    Everyone followback rates dropped because it is saturated. back in 2013 I had a 90 procent + followback ratio i followed a little over 3k in a span of 2 weeks and got 3k followers back. Now For 7k following i get around 1,5k followers back.

    I had same problem. When you switch back to personal profile, it will get back to your old follow back ratio. My experience.
