NAME: Jasmine Engel-Malone
CENSORSHIP: Shadow, content & ad ban
What reason was given for your ban?
There has never been a reason given.
Just a massive drop in engagement as well as not being able to use the advertisement tools.
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Images that include partial nudity (all though in no way sexual and always censored private areas).
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
My posts are always reinstated when taken down. However, my engagement is severely low.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
It’s affected my self-esteem regarding my work, I sometimes feel as though maybe people just don’t like the images I create. However, when I post my stories regarding the issue, many people message me saying that they just don’t see me on their timeline anymore.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
Engagement isn’t everything and engagement isn’t equal to what people may feel about your work.
