What's the conclusion on Creator accounts?

I know many threads say business accounts have less exposure than personal, and that buying ads results in a decrease in engagement - but there has been no general synopsis on the relatively new Creator accounts (besides Alexvno saying it hasn’t negatively affected his engagement).

What has your experience with a Creator account been, and would you suggest it for others?

Below are links to other threads to read about Creator accounts - please take time to post your opinion here before delving off on a reading marathon though :joy:

I have a creator account and I can say that the success of any one of my posts has a lot of factors but having a creator account is definitely not one of them.
