I'm an artist and advertise my work on Instagram. With the new algorithm, I fear that my photos will be overshadowed by celebrity posts with 1000s of likes. I post/engage with my followers daily, but how can I keep growing organically if my posts are pushed to the bottom by more popular ones?
This is a big fear for a lot of people, but I think there's some miscommunication. If you are an active part of your community and the community that is following you. They should always been seeing your stuff first.
I think the wrong idea is that a significant amount of brands, celebrities, and businesses think they control other people's feeds – and it's just not true. Every individual has control over their own feed – so I think it's important to remember that when thinking about the changes that we induce.
Hopefully that helps! Thanks!
