Many ask am I shadowbanned? While not knowing what the hell it is!!
A shadowban is when your posts gets limited to views only by your followers. That means your post cannot make explore, How do you know if you are shadowed?
Go into an account that does not follow your account you want to find out if shadowed. Look up a hashtag you just used ( preferebly #accountname hashtag if you use one) and see if your post comes up. If it does not, your shadowbanned.
So - just what is the main reason? Simple, using banned or semibanned hashtags. Take for example
#petite or #romance
look them up and go all the way to the bottom… you will see this
it is a semi banned hashtag. If you use it, you WILL get shadow banned.
How do you get out of it? Simple delete ALL banned and semi banned hashtags from the last few posts if just recent, else you need to find ALL and delete them. Same goes for banned ones also.
How do you find which hashtags are bad? Look them up…and test.
It takes about 3 days to 2 weeks to get out of it once you delete them. There are other reasons and this is the most common.
