    Who else has gotten insights & what have you noticed about your reach?

    I have 22K followers & I'm shocked that, on average, my posts are reaching around 1,100 people per day!

    On the upside, my posts are averaging 70%+ engagement from the people who see them. However, going strictly by the numbers shown on my page (what everyone else in the world sees), I'm getting less than 5% engagement.

    Anyone else see a similar trend? What strategies can we employ to improve reach?

    It was random, you need to join your FB page to your IG page and wait.

    In my opinion, IG is throttling the engagement. They want YOU to believe that YOU NEED to start promoting your posts by switching to their new business account.

    How else are they going to make money, unless YOU FEEL that YOU NEED to start spending money for engagements.

    I thought you were trying to link your facebook account to get the business option on your IG account? Were you able to get it set up? If you're the same guy I think you are that I'm chatting with on Telegram!

    OP, did you have to change to business account to get insights? Or are you still a personal account? My account is 20k following and I was offered ability to go business today, but I do not want to because I'm scared they will throttle engagement of business accounts. I do want insights though =/

    Yes, I had to change to a business account.

    I've heard a few people mention that followers went up & engagement dropped after switching. Honestly, I haven't noticed any difference.
