    On my most recent post, my photo has appeared in the hashtags and then almost immediately disappeared from the hashtags. I can't see my own photo in the hashtags, and neither can followers or non-followers. This has happened before, but when I used other hashtags, it was resolved. I have tried reposting with other hashtags and it isn't helping.

    Has anyone seen this? Can anyone shed some light on this. It is extremely frustrating.

    It's called a "shadow-ban" or something. Just look that up if you want to find more info on it. Instagram does that when you use the same hashtags for multiple posts. Pretty stupid imo.

    Use different hashtags on all your posts and you should be in the clear.

    How old is this account? How many real followers? Hashtags have been filtered/throttled for a while now, it's probably the same Facebook algorithm.
