Why I Don't Worry About The Followers and Likes Of My Instagram Account
To be honest, I was also struggling for new followers and likes. But due to my rather non-ethusiatic mindset on Instagram, I don't have many followers and therefore don't get many likes.
I just don't have the time to spend on a successful Instagram account. Because in my life there are more important things than to understand the Instagram algorithm and to spend hours in Instagram to increase it. My husband, my family, my job and all our travels are more than worth it to enjoy every minute and not being half of the time on Instagram. All the beautiful moments we should fully enjoy and not ruin with “stories” and photos for Instagram.
Luckily today I am happy and thankful about my 50-60 likes pro post. Because they are mostly real likes and not some bot-likes. A lot of likes are from people I really know. Therefor I’m so thankful that I get less likes but real person they really like my photo or comments.
I don’t worry about the followers and likes and I give nothing about how to increase my followers or likes.
Many Instagram user are using a bot for getting more followers and likes. In my opinion using a bot is a big mistake because “it’s a fake”, especially if you like to build an account with personalty.
I don’t like the idea that people only like your account because you follow them or like a photo of theirs.
The problem today is that not all influencers became popular instagram accounts through authenticity and organic growth alone. I know that many influencer used methods and tricks to generate reach and commitment or should I rather say “to fake it”.
Before Instagram was taken over by Facebook, Instagram had no algorithm. This algorithm was introduced in August 2016. Since then, the Instagram feed is no longer displayed chronologically, but prioritized by Instagram for users. In the past, you could post a photo at 5 pm and were sure that many likes and comments were generated because people were on their way home. Meanwhile, Instagram determines which photos are displayed at the top of the feed, which leads to new methods for the user to trick the algorithm.
I heard about that in 2019 Instagram is only showing your content to 10% of your followers, if you share two times a day, then you will reach about 20% of my followers instead of 10%. When more people can see your posts, the more your followers will engage. When your followers engage and use the app, Instagram takes notice and will share your account with other accounts, so your chances of gaining new followers increases.
Unfortunately, it has become a common practice for many companies and customers to check out your Instagram account and to be measured too often by your followers and likes not by your real good work you already did. many Photographers, Models, Fashion-Stylist, Makeup-Artist don’t get a job because of the less numbers of followers on Instagram.
It's really awful that we've come this far. But I don’t want to get under pressure about it. That’s why I prepared today ‘s post to give a shout out “Don’t Stress, do your best”!
In this sense, don’t be worry and don’t think so much about it. Just do always your best, stay real and enjoy your life.
Have a nice day,
