Instagram decided to block me – temporarilyFirst published 1 year ago
Well, first of all I haven’t been posting here for a very long time. But today is the moment I finally decided to enter a few words right here in my own space, a space where I can type and share whatever I wish to share. Well, or at least most of it but perhaps not everything given the widespread fear of writing and sharing something that could potentially violate a policy or may perhaps offend someone. Is this really 2022 or are we back into the stone age?
But then, that’s a completely different story to tell and not really the reason for my post today. Today is about Instagram and the fact that I have two of my accounts suspended for violating community rule. Strangely for engaging in a practice that helps me to gain followers, clicks and likes 🙂 Well, at least I am just temporarily restricted from performing some actions, like liking posts or posting reels. Did you have such a similar experience before?
Perhaps it’s even good to stay off that platform for some time and rather focus on the real socializing – it certainly is the better choice but not entirely free of restrictions as well.
The thing is that I joined a group of “common interest”, sharing same ideas and hobbies. This group allowed me to meet people I may never have found or it would perhaps have taken a lot of time to meet all these great people from a community of common interest. So, what’s wrong with that? Isn’t that exactly what community should be all about?
It obviously wouldn’t be correct to buy likes or followers. But joining a group which actually is a community violates community guidelines. How weird is that? Would like to know what you think about this. Share your comments if you like. Or is it really just me?
