When last I commented on my Instagram account (31 October 2018), it was being followed by just 50. Since then, 144 days have passed and my followers have increased by 16 – depressingly small, but then again, a 32% increase. A limiting growth factor remains the need to add three images at a time (following my decision to maintain a specific grid layout). Clearly, the somewhat sporadic nature of my research cannot help maintain a followers interest or draw others to a constantly updated feed. It remains work in progress.
In that previous post I reference a Tutee who had over 52K followers. Having just checked his page, he now has 63.2K followers and is still 13 years old! Pleasingly his tally has gone up by a more meagre 21.5% over the same time span!
