Over the past month or so, the internet has been flooded by reports of Instagram ‘shadow banning’ accounts.The term “shadow ban”—also called “stealth” or “ghost” banning—refers to banning an account without the admin knowing it. From their perspective, everything seems normal, but no one can see the photos, comments, or videos they’re posting. This practice, ostensibly limited to business accounts, is destroying engagement on these profiles.
