Instagram Punished me @endrebarath for being kind…
No! The reason is not what you are thinking. I was not writing hundreds of posts about Real Estate No not because I was spamming people.
Well let me give you a little background I have been on Instagram since August 2016 during this time I have posted 75 times. I did manage to build a following of about 960+/- followers, since that number is fluid depending when you look up or down by 30+/- and I am following about 411 people.
I do not use a third party to do any of my social media posts. All is done by me for better or worse. I decided the past two weeks that I owe it to my followers to press the “like” or “heart” icon to show them and give them love.
Now with that said you might ask so, what was “The crime” ? The crime was “too many loves” period! I had no idea that there is a limit on how much love you can give. Well thanks to Instagram there is a limit.
How do I know this? I tried to press the heart icon yesterday and I received this ominous message:
Based on previous use of this feature, your account has been temporarily blocked from taking this action. This block will expire on 06/09/2019. We restrict certain content and actions to protect our community. Tell us if you think we made a mistake.
Tell us Ignore
I then tried other features such as leaving comments, no problem with that. I was just shaking my head and grousing to Diane about it.
I decided to do some research and I learned that this is not so unusual. If you happened to get blocked temporarily, don’t do anything with your profile and do not start searching for customer service, just wait it out before the “privilege” is restored. It will happen faster then trying to get a response from the customer service people.
I have also learned that do not try to do time blocking with Instagram, such as liking too many posts in a short amount of time. Also try not to comment to too many people in a short amount of time.
So, what was the ‘Lesson’ I learned? Well my lesson out of this is that remember who owns Instagram. If you do not let me share here: It is owned by Facebook. So either accept it that they do what ever they want to do or take a more aggressive approach and write to email@example.com I am confident you will get a response😊
