Here’s why your posts are getting less views on Instagram

Today I’ve decided to write a daily prompt about panic. I’m writing about Instagram’s new stupid algorithm because it really makes me panic when I think about all the people getting less likes from it.

Over the past year, Instagram has been rolling out the new algorithm that changed the way posts appear on your feed. It’s a stupid algorithm created by really smart people. Continue reading “Here’s why your posts are getting less views on Instagram”
