Algorithms for social media sites are constantly changing, but one thing is for sure, it’s all about engagement. Instagram pods are one way that people can boost their engagement. An Instagram pod is a group of people that agree to “like” and comment on one others’ post in order to boost their own engagement. In turn, it increases their ability to be found, which leads to more followers. There are really no rules, and you can start a pod with anyone. You can start a pod by asking people that are part of your online or face-to-face groups if they would like to join. You can even just ask your friends and family to “like” and comment on your post. And guess what? They will, because they want to help you.
