How about your own accounts commenting on your stuff

Hypothetically speaking, imagine you had 10 accounts, in fact, for the purpose of this question, imagine they were clever robots from the future.

Imagine they all had an account each and when they came across a certain account they would comment on the post.

You reckon this is a feasible way of driving engagement or would the fact that the robots are all sharing the same flat and internet mess their plans of engagement up?

Yes, it can quickly become obvious who is who. Essentially the same as being part of an engagement pod. Have seen many accounts where the same 10 accounts comment over and over. Hasn’t really helped with growth. Plus, IG’s algorithm is getting better and better, so it will be easier for them to spot this kind of behavior.
