    Not sure about the description piece. My guess was that even if one of those accounts noticed it and liked it (because they or whoever was managing their account at the time was bored or something), it would get more attention?

    People get a notification on their mobile when someone mentions them, so they are inclined to check out the media (and hopefully like/comment on the media)

    From my experience, it greatly enhanced the engagement (likes). But it would not help hit the explore. I just used several times and then I stopped. This looks so spammy and it ruins the accounts actually although you have more likes. They just look so fake.

    LMAO, no, thats not what it is about. I care shit if those celebs will like my content or not.

    Tip: keep the list for just a few minutes and delete it. It will do the job.

    Is it possible to tag then edit and keep notification

    I see this as a good way to lose an account to spam


    EDIT:


    Does the notification stay? or is that to get users in the minutes while its up

    Doesn't work anymore, tag 15 or so will work.

    Milked it though, it was a great way for me to re-engage with my followers and the engagement is up as IG is ranking it higher in their feeds I think.

    3% is massive, for a 100k account that is 3000 more likes

    Well I only tried it on one post, it could have been just a great photo. I didn't have time to test it properly. 3% is massive on a big account, I tested this on a fairly small account.
