What is Shadow Banning on social media?

Shadow Banning (shadow banning in Spanish) is the action carried out by social networks to limit or silence those accounts or profiles that violate the terms and conditions established by social networks. The objective of this ban is to keep the users that make up said social network safe from people who may be using their profile to cause damage.

When Shadowban is applied to a user this happens without any kind of notification, therefore the owner of the profile does not realize that he was silenced because his comments and publications will continue to appear on his account, but will only be limited to his followers ; As a consequence, its content will not be visible to those users who do not follow it, so your account will not grow because your publications will not be shown to new followers.

The ban is mainly produced by the misuse of social networks ; such as massively repeating the same hashtags, following many accounts in a short time, using third-party tools or some people make massive complaints about the account; then the social network in question places a type of fine, that is, it limits the scope of the profile.

Knowing if you are a victim of Shadow Banning is simple, check if the reach of your publications and interaction is reduced only to your followers. For example, on Instagram you can check who has viewed your stories if only your followers do so, maybe your account was silenced.

Another thing you can do is make a post with a hashtag, then ask a person other than your follower to search for that hashatg, if the person doesn’t get that post, it is because your account was silenced.
