Have you noticed a abrupt decline in your social media engagement? Has your content stopped surfacing in people’s feeds?
If that’s the case, you could have been shadow banned.
Social media platforms have publicly denied the act of shadow banning. But platforms have also acknowledged that their algorithms tend to play a part in which content is given air time and boosted.
Although platforms might not technically shadow ban accounts, their algorithms could still be minimizing public exposure to your content without letting you know.
Shadow banned means that your social post has been blocked or restricted in some way without you receiving any warning.
The concept of shadow banning started getting popularity around 2018 when political conservative account owners alleged they were being shadow banned.
