    As you all my have heard instagram are changing the feed so that you effectively view what they put in front of you (check their blog post). I was wondering what this means for us botters? I believe one of two things may happen but I am not sure what is more likely:


    1. Engagement will significantly drop because instagram can effectively limit how much people see our feeds if an account is potentially flagged as a botter
    2. Engagement will increase as us botters have the ability to post such regular content, so people will see our accounts more often than say their friend who posts every few weeks, and thus we will be boosted up the feed often because instagram believes the user wants to see our account

    I wonder what your thoughts are? Will instagram soon die?

    As a user I really hope this is optional. Seems like they are just trying to push even more paid content to the news feed.

    Probably the first. All of this is done for the point of monetizing on their end, they don't wnt to help botters any more than they should

    It's an algorithm. You can "play" with it, so play with it.

    IG wants to give more attention to the little guys, because the little guys are 99% of their users and they feel left out of the big IG game.
    IG knows the 1% are making mad money, and that they can afford to pay them for exposure.

    I saw the transition for FB for quite a while befofe it hit and I wish I had gotten into IG much sooner. But there is still a ton of money to be made.
