Warning – Instagram Ghost Followers Can Be Harmful To Your Profile!

You are all about your followers, the number of followers increases the smile on your face. You post stories thanking your followers to make you reach the set bar. 

Amazing right?

But, here is a bummer - It is time to remove followers, i.e., removing ghost followers!

If your followers don’t engage with your post, it is time to remove them as Instagram will push your post to only 10% of your followers and show them your post in the news feed! And, only if they engage with your post. 

So, the followers that are not active, or don’t engage with your post will lead your engagement to the steep down. 

Instagram has changed a lot over the years, starting from the aesthetics, logo, to the Instagram algorithm. A major change has happened! And, all you can do to increase your engagement rather than just your followers is to remove the inactive ones or bots. You are going to lose the audience, but your engagement is eventually going to increase. 

So, what’s the catch?

  • Instagram pushes your post to only 10% of your followers, i.e., the only way to reach the audience is when the ones who are ‘following and are active’ engage with your post. 
  • But, if the ones who are following do not engage with your post, the entire ‘10% push’ phenomena stop then and there. 
  • This leads to a drop in engagement. 

Inactive Instagram followers that bring no value to you, i.e., they are either inactive as they’ve lost the password, they never look onto your post, if you post a poll or anything they don’t participate. In all, they have no activity with your account then these ghost followers need to go. 

Focus on Quality Not Quantity! Small audience yet engaged and relevant are more beneficial!
