Despite the popular claims, a new study reveals that the overall engagement across Instagram is facing a sharp decline since early May 2019. The report was compiled by Trust Insights, a marketing data and consulting firm that analyzed over 1.4 million Instagram posts by a set of 3600+ brand accounts, published between January and mid-June. The study defined the engagement rate as the total number of interactions on a post divided by the account’s following at the time of posting.
