When engagement drops, the algorithm
is the first thing that people blame.
"I've been shadow-banned!"
"The algorithm isn't showing my posts to my friends!"
The thing is, the algorithm favours quality over quantity.
It's designed to reward posts that work with it rather than against it. And when you do this, your post can be seen in people's feeds for D-A-A-AYS.
This means longer exposure from one post and the chance for your post to be seen in multiple places by potential followers.
Yes, the algorithm has changed the Instagram game, but once you crack its code, your account will be well on its way to attracting quality followers.
