I looked through the catalog for /g/ and /ot/. Couldn't find a Instagram general thread.

Let's share our favorite instas, tips, advice, inspo etc.

Gonna start off with a question: How do you farmers deal with the new algorithm while trying to build your account/gain followers?

I'm trying to get back into insta but a few years ago it was easy to get 50-100 likes simply by tagging correctly. Now my tags barely seem to attract a few likes. How is a new account suppose to curate a following? What are the current tricks?

I have the same problem anon! In the early instagram days my drawing account had a fairly big following because of the tags I used. I think hashtags just aren't as relevant anymore? No one searches a hashtag nowadays.

It's all about aesthetic nowadays. You can easily get followers with a pretty face and a photo theme (backgrounds, colors, lighting, etc.), you don't even have to use hashtags. Obviously having followers from other places (Youtube/Tumblr/etc.) helps.

Look at inq_ for example, he has 33.5k followers and he just posts pictures of himself and his clothes, no hashtags involved.

I'm torn between having a private IG and a public one. I kind of want to use it as a diary of sorts but I'm worried that people I know will recognize me with what I talk about. At the same time I'd like to share some pretty/cute pics I take.

Just make sure your IG isn't connected to the same email you use in your other social media (especially Facebook) and you should be fine.

I really miss pre-algorithm Instagram. I feel like all the stuff I'm being fed, even from people I follow, is so unvaried. I'm following about 250 people and I see posts from about 30 overall. I follow so many people because I have varied interests and I want to see new things!
Although maybe I am using insta wrong, I tend to lurk and not like anything, let alone comment, so the algorithm may have the wrong idea about what I want.
