Why You're Shadowbanned: Cannabis Social Media

I’ve been a victim too “My posts/account got taken down” (RIP STIIIZY). “Help I’m shadow banned and can’t get up” which is a real thing.

Here’s what’s most likely happening? 

I’ve been a victim too “My posts/account got taken down” (RIP STIIIZY). “Help I’m shadow banned and can’t get up” which is a real thing.

Here’s what’s most likely happening? 

I get a lot of questions form Cannabis brands about instagram, content …for IG or social media and posts.
I hear “my account got taken down” (RIP STIIIZY) or I’m shadow banned, which is a real thing.

Here’s what’s most likely happening?

Someone/ a competitor is flagging your account and reporting you.

Instagram isn’t fine combing combing through pictures all day, but they are watching your hash tags. They don’t have a vendetta against your brand or posts specifically, but if you play into what they’re shadow banning you’ll fall victim.

How do we stop this??

Collab, don’t report.

Stop reporting each other… seriously. This is an industry where people have already suffered enough with prohibition and the repercussion that came with it.

We should be lifting each other up. There’s more than enough to go around. The scarcity mindset is one of the things outside of legislation that’s holding the industry back.

With that being said….

The best way to get around this…

Learn how to work around that. Here’s how:

Check your hashtag pages.

If you look at pages of hashtags you regularly use and see a message that posts have been hidden, it’s possible you’ve been shadow banned for using those hashtags.

But Ryan, the Cannabis hash tag does’t say it’s been hidden…

This hashtag may not meeting Instagram’s “community guidelines” it’s possible Instagram may be hiding your content with this hashtag (even if yours is not in violation of any guidelines).

It’s an uphill battle.
