It’s true that Stories don’t directly earn Instagram likes, and neither do bios, but using hashtags strategically in both is a free way to expand your reach to new fans. Pro tip: If you want to keep things pretty, you can hide the hashtags in your Stories.
Why dont I get more likes on Instagram?
Think long-term, not short term (it’s not about how many followers you can get as fast as possible) Don’t fake it (Instagram will notice & can punish you) Use hashtags for sticky, searchable content. Use Insta Stories to keep in touch.
Will Instagram bring back likes?
It’s important to note that likes will not be disappearing altogether – rather, they will just be hidden to followers, but users will still be able to view how many likes they’ve received on a post with just a couple taps.
