Firstly, let’s discuss the misconception between Instagram follow for follow groups vs. engagement groups.
Instagram engagement groups help users to increase their engagement rates (likes, comments). These groups comprise a community of users that will like or comment on each other’s posts immediately or sometime after it is posted.
As a result, the organic reach of their post will increase and it has a higher chance to hit the explore page.
However, Instagram engagement groups are hard to find and some of the groups have specific requirements needed in order to join them. Additionally, there are many drawbacks to joining an engagement group.
It takes up way too much time and you’ll be kicked out if you’re not actively participating. Also, the number of likes that you’re going to be getting each post will be very inconsistent – with extreme highs and lows.
Follow for follow groups, on the other hand, are much easier to find and there are no strict requirements to join them. Your likes will still remain fairly consistent in contrast to joining engagement groups if you use them correctly.
Hence, here’s a compiled list of Instagram follow for follow groups:
