Many of those of us on Instagram are always trying to beat the dreaded algorithm. Introduced in 2016, it did away with the chronological feed and a lot of accounts seemed to suffer as a consequence – and I don’t mean the crazy huge spam “influencer” accounts, I mean regular accounts. Small businesses, like photographers, retouchers and other creatives.
A recent tip spotted on Twitter by Creative Bloq, though, suggests that there might be a simple way to get ahead. Whether it actually works or not, I don’t know, I haven’t tried it, but without any of us having any actual insight into what Instagram’s algorithm really favours, it’s worth a go.
