@michnus did you notice that pic of yours I reposted got barely more likes than you got on your own?  That's the algorithm right there choking off my followers.  :(

Absolutely Eric that is the sad part of whatever de F they want to achieve with their software decision. 

I know the group comment posting works well. Heard it from other groups, but you have to have a group that will work at it. But that it works is true.

I'll start commenting on the posts more.  I did on @beemer bunny the other day about the fires and even got a reply!  I felt so very special :P  I also started marking ads as spam rather than it's not relevant so hopefully that will reduce ads a bit.

i started an Instagram account a few month back, still not getting how the whole thing works, followers go up and down dramatically daily.

 

One thing i do like is the total lack of BS that i now associate with FB groups, and the constant pitch of i rode a few miles so now i'm an 'author', here's my book...lol. I do see it creeping in now on IG on smaller accounts with people claiming - i took some photos so now i'm a "photographer!!!" I went to College to get my photography degree, there is a difference

 

why can't people just be honest and say I'm out here riding, having fun and here are some photos of that...i can respect that more

 

Anyhow here's my page - https://www.instagram.com/rtwpaul/

IG is the only social media i use,i don't have a facebook profile and i spend some time reading articles at some motorcycle forums here in Greece and XLADV. At IG i have to say that i can deal with the way it works.I think i follow most of the people i see here.Among them,persons with many many many miles at the saddle like michnus ,rtwpaul, polarnomad, dominique and others that i maybe forget right now but i respect them the same,,Eric with XLADV page with huge numbers of followers out there sharing the passion of riders for adv riding makes an amazing effort.

For me the first is to have fun riding,As i say to my IG account i just fooling around with my bike and post pictures from my rides.

Agree with you 100% on FB and on the BS. Instagram at least is just fun and although not needing too much brain power it is much nicer to follow and see the people you really enjoy following. 

 

@Eric Hall we can try that, it will cost nothing and not much effort. You can start a group in Insta and send one of your post as the group and we can just comment on it. And everytime someone do a post they can send the post the group to comment on. I only do 3 post a week so won't spam the place up. :D

Thank you very much!Really appreciated!I think it's not easy to favorite one from your great pictures.The power is that when you post one many people like me want to take their bike and get out and explore and that's the real deal!
