elevate through engagement engagement strategy May 16, 2023

Did you know that if you interact and engage too much on Instagram you can become shadowbanned? Or even worse… permanently banned? 😬

The Winfield Creative has the scoop on what your limits are when it comes to the algorithm and being able to fly under its radar. Over-interacting on social can lead to the Instagram algorithm thinking you are a spam bot account, and the last thing you would want is to start all over again - trust me, I’ve been there!

Here is everything you need to know about engagement limits on Instagram:

  • How many likes can I give out? 👉 120 per hour or 300-500 per day
  • How many comments can I give out? 👉 200 per day
  • How long do I have to wait in between each like and/or comment? 👉 ~20-30 seconds
  • How many accounts can I follow? 👉 ~10 per hour or 100-150 per day
  • How many accounts can I unfollow? 👉 ~10 per hour or 100-150 per day

So be sure to keep these in mind and you'll be sure to fly below the radar - like the ninja you are!
