The race for likes and comments on Instagram is a real struggle, especially if you are an Instagram power user. There’s no shame in admitting that most of us have stalked other users’ profiles to see how many likes and shares they have.

For example, many Instagrammers are inspired by influencers and famous personalities when creating their posts.

If you are trying to grow your followers, you might want to see what things they do that actually work and try to recreate their posts. As we know, the more users like your posts, the more newer subscribers will see them, and potentially become your followers.
