    Seriously, opened a new account, posted one photo manually, bam, shadowbanned, my photo is not showing in hashtags at all...

    They really became extremely strict.

    Is there even a point in trying to un shadow ban it?

    Maybe they flagged your IP address because you violated their rules previously?

    How many hashtags did you use? What kind of photo did you post? Do you have any bio, profil picture, phone number linked to your account? You clearly did something wrong.

    Try to delete all hashags, commets, tags. Switch to private and public again. Log out, log in.

    1. I doubt they flagged my IP as I have a dynamic residential IP (good luck banning an entire block of IP from a legit provider).
    2. Around 7 hashtags or so...
    3. The picture was normal (I mean PG-13 rated).

    Eh, just Instagram things... Switching to Pinterest

    Its possible the actions are not considered normal. Many brand new users don't post photos immediately. They are shy, trying to see whats going on, get a handle on the platform before uploading their first photo. They will usually follow, get followers, and like dozens of photos, fix their profile, before posting their first post.

    Opening a new account and posting right away screams spam account.

    In my opinion you shouldnt need to use hashtags...most people who search via hashtags are bots anyways. No one really looks through hashtags anymore since its so oversaturated. Post good content and people will find you.

    they actually did. massplanner got destroyed because of instagram. check out their main page, it no longer exists. why? because instagram sent a cease and desist notice to them. instagram had massplanner by the balls, and in order to save themselves MP complied and took down everything

    Instagram has become very strict-I agree..they have to in order to survive.

    Let's not forget it's owned by Facebook (a publicly traded company.) The second a company become publicly traded they have a responsibility to answer to the shareholders and will get scrutiny for not improving.

    Blackhat Social Media Marketing methods do not bring revenue to FB/Insta therefore it's in their best interest to be incredibly strict in order to force us to buy ads. FB can not miracle anther model to keep shareholders happy like Apple can. There is no Instagram 5s, 6, 6s 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, etc.

    The traffic is their lifeblood, we are actively messing with it.
