Will Instagram change it's algorithm like Facebook did and show virtually nothing to our followers?

Like a lot of people I spent a lot of time building a Facebook following only to have my posts later shown to practically no one when Facebook changed their algorithm a few years back.

So now I'm wondering what do you think Instagram will do?

It's amazing right now, lots of engagement but how much money and time should I spend building that up? Will it just be shut down in the future like Facebook is now?

    Given that it worked so well when they did it on Facebook, I think it's highly likely that they'll do it again with Instagram. If I had to take a bet I'd say they'd do it early next year, as they've flagged to the market that their growth in ad revenue will slow this year, while they build up capability.

      What do you think they'll do with advertising then?

      I can still reach my Facebook audience with ads and I can with Instagram but I can't link to anything in my Instagram ads, or is there a way to do it?

    no i think instagram will not change its algorithm like facebook..that both is different ..so it will not affect that also.
