I would like to welcome everyone to my blog! Sometimes our posts on Instagram get fewer engagements than they are used to. Have you ever thought about why? We often get convinced that we are experiencing an ever-feared shadow ban. Today, I have a very good piece of news for you all. Now Instagram will now let you know if your Insta post isn’t being recommended to other users. Isn’t it great?
Is your Insta post blocked from being recommended?
Recently, Instagram head Adam Mosseri announced that now Insta App will let you know if your post is blocked from being recommended. Creators and businesses will be able to see if their posts are being blocked from appearing in recommendations on the app. This feature is similar to the end of Feed or Explore or in other places, Instagram shows photos and videos from people you don’t follow.
Mosseri stated in a video posted to Twitter:
“Today we’re announcing new transparency tools so you can see whether or not your photos and videos are recommended in places like explore. Now, we know reach can be volatile. You can see how many people you reach go up and down over time, and one of the reasons that happen is sometimes your account can end up in a state where it’s not eligible for your photos and videos in what we call recommendations.”
- Click your settings menu
- Navigate to account settings under “account.”
A quick check of there will show you if any of your posts aren’t allowed to be recommended because they have been banned. Among the many reasons why your posts may be blocked, I would like to tell you that there are several things you can try. I believe the most likely reason for this is that you have not followed the community guidelines, or your Instagram posts have been flagged too often. Instagram is probably going to be seen as a transparent tool for creators, but what we’re still hoping for from Instagram is the ability to see who has blocked us (if anyone has blocked us). Isn’t it? In any case, I suspect that I will never have the opportunity to find out. What do you guys think?
