If you posted this afternoon (after about 11am on the East Coast, 8am for West Coast), October 30, 2019, you probably noticed a nosedive in your likes and views, and panicked. Don’t worry – it is only temporary. Instagram didn’t change its algorithm, but the main feeds are down and are not showing new images at the moment.

The good news is: Stories are still working!

How To Handle:

I handled this bug by sharing my client posts to stories with wording like: Instagram’s feed is down. “Click here if you missed our post today:” to beckon a few more likes from each brand’s most die hard fans.

Our fingers are crossed in hopes that the feed will be back and running smoothly again soon.
