    Yeah its ghosting my hashtags for some reason...i don't even post often and only use one hashtag per post....i do however get likes when i post so thats good...i dont see why it considers it spam...could it be that I'm following too much?

    The hashtag is the name of my account so i wont say it but it was used way before i named my account that, it was also rarely used and users are now starting to use it ever since i started botting/growing my account but anyway...i just noticed my most recent posts never showed up under the hashtag or any other hashtag i use...i tried "music" "food" "selfiesandstuff" etc...none work, its like i got banned from using hashtags

    There may be a character limit, I am not sure. Started my first IG account for my online business and used a crap ton of hashtags relevant to a certain niche. When I went beyond a certain amount, my comments or even the caption won't show up. So I cut down on hashtags and it started posting my captions again.

    I hope this helps. Again, it may be a character limit, but it may not. I am not sure :/

    That doesn't generally happens but only if you have been posting too many pictures together throughout the day or using bots to do so. As after the recent Instagram updates, everything has become more harder to manage and work upon. Hence, I would suggest you to be more careful with what you do and rather work through the whitehat way if possible.

    yeah i still don't know why i would be getting ghosted, like i said i only use 1 hashtags per post and only post about 3x throughout the day...the hashtag works too cause people are starting to pick it up, which is awesome lol but my posts aren't even showing...so that sucks!
