2. More Consistent Posting

With Instagram rolling out a new home Feed of full-screen Reels, it’s more important than ever to be consistent with your posting. 

Reels with trending audio are well-liked by Instagram’s algorithms and are heavily promoted across the entire app experience.

So, what does this mean for you?

Reels get favored by the algorithm and appear more on Instagram’s Explore page–making them a key strategy for improving discovery and growth.

However, this data only scratches the surface of your post engagement and interactions.
