CENSORSHIP: Shadow ban & content ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
My photos are abstract, I collage them like David Hockney.
It was around that time, I was told my work was pornographic. I had 2 instances of having my content taken down and then my likes fell to way under 50%.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
No, I sent an email to Instagram but got no word.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
Less traffic, the algorithms have made sure my posts don’t even show up for some people.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
Centralized authorities that can censor people when they feel like can have a damaging effect on society. It narrows the consciousness of man since they can only see certain things.
