Hashtags: The Way Forward
Hashtag abuse has been one of Instagram’s main problems. It has been said that plans are afoot to eventually do away with hashtags completely. To be continued. They continue to be potent and helpful in the interim. Until the day (if it comes) when Instagram removes them, we advise utilising them.
Instagram has decided to reclaim its service. Nothing novel here. Instagram has been regaining control of the platform since 2016 when tweaks to the algorithm first appeared. And just when we start to forget that IG is in control, they go and change things up again.
Plan for the future
Those who are randomly selected as “test” accounts after believing themselves to be shadowbanned are believed to be the lucky ones. They’re still ahead of the game even though their participation dropped. If you want to be prepared for the next Instagram update, our recommendation is to begin training now.
The updated Instagram will utilise automatic image identification technology. It will function by analysing the content of your photographs. Therefore, it is crucial that your images properly display your material. Instagram’s algorithm will rank and display your posts if they understand what they are.
Follow the IG Guidelines, or Else
Instagram is constantly improving the tools they use to administer the service. Did you know they can identify the difference between a shot taken with an iPhone 7 and one taken with a Canon Rebel? What you’re doing and how you’re doing it are both known to their technology. A suspension is possible if you don’t follow their regulations. They might choose not to display your image. Your thread can be moved wherever they choose. It’s a breeze to scroll all the way down everyone’s feed. They can choose to reveal your photo to anybody they choose, or no one at all.
Some Specific Examples of Disappointments to IG
Avoid following or unfollowing
Don’t make use of any automated systems or bots.
Use hashtags thoughtfully.
The New Instagram and How to Stay Unbanned
If you don’t want Instagram to ever suspend your account, you should avoid doing anything that might be seen as spammy. We should all be on our best behaviour because we know Instagram is serious business. If you’re not sure, err on the side of caution, or in Instagram parlance, authenticity.
Is There Anything Else That Could Lower Your Visibility Or Engagement?
Did you realise that there is a limit to how much you can do on IG in a given day? Instagram has implemented restrictions in an attempt to identify automated accounts and false growth activities. You should not exceed 150 likes, 60 comments, or 60 follows/unfollows every hour, however these numbers might vary significantly depending on the age of your account. If you do, your device will alert you to stop. It’s unclear what this does to your account, so it’s best to avoid it.
Stay away from so-called “growth hacks” and always play by the rules. No cheating or rule violation is allowed at this time. A popular “growth hack” now being implemented involves, for instance, initially adding 30 hashtags to a remark and then revising your caption to include another 30 hashtags. You now have 60 tags instead of the standard 30 you’re permitted. Although this does seem to work (the claimed increase in engagement isn’t very large), now is not the time to do anything particularly “tricky.”
So, Instagram needs…
Instagram makes it quite obvious.
Make a memorable logo that stands out.
Just share stories.
Value precision over quantity.
Proper placement of text next to appropriate images.
Instagram encourages users to focus on reaching the correct audience rather than any audience at all by using clear and distinguishable visual material (recognisable by computer artificial intelligence). Instagram users appreciate crisp, consistent images. Instead of employing hash tags or other manipulative “growth strategies,” focus on producing content that is easy to understand and actively seeks out and interacts with your target audience.
A New Take on Instagram
By now, we should all know that whining about Instagram updates is pointless. Here, change is the only constant. Therefore, we may either go with the flow, adjust, and play by their rules, or face the repercussions of not doing so. Just as in real life, success comes to those who can adjust swiftly. Instagram’s ever-changing atmosphere is reflective of real life, and notably the rapid pace of change in the twenty-first century.
