Freeze them to decrease ghost followers on Instagram

Even if, as I told you in the introduction of the article, it is utopian to think of completely eliminating your ghost followers, it is possible to try to make the contents shared on the photographic social network more engaging, so as to contain this problem.

How can you do it? A great way is to be original and fun: maybe post some funny content from time to time that generates hilarity and enthusiasm in the audience (e.g. a funny meme, a particular photo, etc.) e, when it seems appropriate to do so, explicitly invites users who follow you to express their opinion about the topic of the post, with a comment or a like.

Another trick you would do well to follow is encourage users to interact directly with your account: maybe you can do this by creating polls or organizing live shows from time to time. You can be sure that your followers will enjoy this kind of interactive content.
