Should I Delete My Picture If I Do Not Get 500 Likes On Instagram?

On no, I better delete this photo on Instagram right away because it only has twelve likes in twelve hours!

So should you delete a photo if it does not get enough “likes” on Instagram. I do not think so, but I read some people actually delete pictures that do not meet a certain threshold of thumbs up. Actually, I appreciate when people like photos I post there, but surprisingly some of the photos I like the most are the ones with the least amount of responses. I am trying to post less often to Instagram because I know that people get super annoyed if they get too many status updates from your feed, but I still will post pictures I like. I am trying to post at least daily, but sometimes I go a couple of days without logging in.

Sure everyone wants more likes and followers on social media, but I actually created several of my Instagram accounts with hopes people would click through and read my blogs. So what I care about the most are those who are intrigued enough to click the link in my bio and read more. So I am sure that more likes are something we all crave, but I cannot simply go after these by posting things I am not interested in.

Interestingly, I now have a YouTube and blog that are a bit more secret side, in that I do not promote these on my main channels, and these actually have ended up being quite popular. Both are about niche topics, but the fact that people love the content on these without me having to even promote is quite interesting. I did make an Instagram for the YouTube account, but I have not even put much time into it yet.

  1. I think the things people find worthy of liking can be quite surprising. I am intrigued by the fact that your niche sites require no promotion.

    People seem to like the videos about Bow grooming my face the most, but that does not mean I will stop posting on other topics that the majority of readers and viewers seem to find less interesting than that.

  2. The niche sites are about a topic we were discussing awhile back, hair. Yep, I do not have to promote these at all, and people are promoting them for me. Such a change lol. But I will still make videos about the topics I enjoy the most, food, nature and art. I am putting some of the hair content on a second channel. I just do not talk about this publicly on my main Facebook page.
