    Hi, so I've been using followliker for a little less than a year (settings have been pretty consistent the entire time). I've been getting solid engagement (consistent 2000+ likes and 250-350 followers per day) until about mid October. I'm now struggling to even get 1800 likes, with ranges from 1500-1800 even though my content quality has increased.

    Has Instagram limited my account's engagement? Is there any way to check if they're punishing me for using bots? Would appreciate any help!

    My account is around 80k right now

    its instagrams new changes nothing you did, most people are affected and there is no fix.
    there are more threads about this.

    you can try to change up some things but nothing has worked to bring engagement back up to what it was.
    ultimately its facebooks way of making instagram more profitable for them.

    I suppose that's reassuring to hear. I'm toning down my followliker settings for sure. I had posts frequently get 3000 likes with my highest being over 5000 so I suppose I just want that back hahah

    Appreciate your help, brotha

    My account engagement have dropped too and it has started from last 4-5 months. Every time certain engagement percent drops in most of my accounts so sadly we have to deal with what instagram is doing.

    This is affecting my instagram account badly. Engagement dropped lower than I have ever seen.
