Instagram and shadowbans

My friend thought that she was shadowbanned coz her posts weren’t appearing on hashtags. It turns out that she was using 2 hashtags that were banned. So even if you are using 20+ hastags, if you use even just 1 banned hashtag, your posts won’t appear in searches.

Could you believe that #depression is banned and #books? Even #romance, #friskyfriday, #sexy, #lust #balls (lol) etc.

If you are active on instagram, I would suggest tapping on your hashtags to make sure that they aren’t banned. Otherwise, you are limiting your posts from being seen my the world. Banned hashtags would look like this:
