What are Instagram Engagement Groups (Pods)?
Instagram engagement is a metric that identifies the level of affinity or interaction between the subject Instagram account and the account’s followers.
Everyone wants organic engagement from REAL Instagram users who genuinely and authentically love our images, captions and hashtags.
With regular and increasingly aggressive changes to the Instagram Algorithm, it gets more complicated to get your higher engagement or get your posts seen in the Tops Posts section of the feed.
Engagement on Instagram includes:
- clicking the link in the Bio
- emailing from the Bio
- phoning from the Bio
- checking the business location from the Bio
- mentioning users in the comment section
- tagging users on a photo
- direct messaging
Gain real engagement with the Authentic Instagram Followers Service by BuySellShoutouts. Real people will follow you from your target audience, helping you connect with people who want what you have to offer.
Did you know the average engagement rate for Twitter and Facebook is about 0.5-1% while the same content is able to reach an engagement rate of 3-6% on Instagram? As you examine the various ways a user can interact with an Instagram account, you’ll quickly recognize the power of Instagram as a marketing tool.
Is the most coveted high engagement “win” on Instagram gaining a new follower? The answer to this question depends on what your objective is. Are you an affiliate marketer that wants clicks to your offer or landing page? Are you an aspiring influencer that is working to create an authentic community? If you are excelling on all the main touch points, you have a higher chance of increasing your Instagram account engagement.

How to Calculate the Engagement Rate on an Instagram Account
Some Instagram consultants suggest to calculate the engagement rate using this formula:
[(likes + comments of the last 10 posts, excluding the most recent one/10) / (number of followers)] x 100.
- 15,000 total likes (total of last 10 posts excluding the most recent
- 2,000 total comments (total of last 10 posts excluding the most recent)
- 30,000 followers
Formula: [(17,000/ 10)/ 30,000] x 100 = 5.66% (engagement rate)
This formula is flawed in that it only uses the 10 most recent posts. We strongly suggest you will get a much more accurate rate if you look at the last 12 weeks of posts and simply change the formula to align with whatever number of posts you choose to use.

How do Instagram Pods Work?
Pods are always a private group of people on various social media platforms that require you to request membership or pay a fee. You can often find them on Facebook groups, Telegram groups, Telegram bots or Messenger groups , or via Instagram DM (direct messages) group.
Membership requires a minimum number of followers and your niche will need to align with the pod’s specific niche. Once you are accepted into a pod ,you will be required to like and or comment on recent posts by other pod members. As a pod member, you can plan to spend your spare time giving a lot of likes and comments to posts you have no interest in.
Pod rules vary from pod to pod, but they will usually watch and track your interaction or participation with the group.
If the “pod police” in a larger pod find that you are not operating within their rules, you will be removed and usually without warning.
Here are some simple universal pod or engagement group rules:
- Drop – this is the term used for the time you have to complete your required action (like or comment)
- Leech – this is the term used when someone does not do the required action
- No Chatting – business only, so no chatting
Break the rules? Often you are banned with no warning. There are always a list of people waiting to join a good pod. You might be able to pay a penalty to be forgiven, but it’s not worth the risk.
Do Instagram Pods Get Results?
Always remember that participants in pods only Llke and comment because they must like and comment to maintain membership in the group.
So even though real people take steps to like and comment, isn’t this still fake engagement?
If a member leaves the pod, you can be sure that they will stop engaging with other members.
Pods promise these results:
- Increase organic reach
- Increase the chance of a piece of content ending up on the Explore Page
- Increase the number of likes and comments
- Build new connections
Why this “promise” can fail:
- By definition, the reach is not organic because the engagement is contrived
- Increase the chance to be seen on Explore Page? No one can define what “increase the chance” means
- Increases FAKE likes and comments because engagement is fake
- Does not build new connections because engagement is fake

Why do so many Instagram Engagement Groups (Pods) Waste your Time and Money?
The way Instagram engagement Groups work is that the owners of these private groups get Instagram users to join, usually for a fee. Then the owners schedule activity periods or specific times for the POD members, sometimes on a daily basis. During this activity period ,pod members must like or comment a members’ posts within a certain period of time or they get banned from the group.
Users can opt out of certain activity periods, but if they opt out too often they get banned. The entire time-consuming concept is designed to create activity for the sake of Instagram statistics. You gain worthless likes and comments in the hopes that some people might see the activity and join in.
None of the users in this group have any geniune interest in the user’s page they are liking or commenting on Instagram engagement groups, also known as Instagram pods, have NO authentic Instagram activity. If you are trying to monetize your account with Instagram engagement groups (pods) , know that they actually waste of a lot of time and money.
Remember: no one who is a member of an engagement group has any interest in the quality of your content. Group members are only in the group to get likes and comments that look real. Did you know that this type of engagement is meaningless and will never convert to a sale?
This is how Instagram engagement groups (pods) waste your time and money.
