    Hi

    Just thought I'd share my experiences with everyone

    I have 2 accounts, one in fitness and one in clothing. My fitness account has been shadowbanned after 3 posts today - it seems as if this happened before and then started working again so I am going to keep trying but ATM I am completely invisible to anyone but my followers. I've used massplanner to grow to where I am and followed safe settings from the start. My follow settings have been constant for past use and the only thing I've done out of the ordinary whilst growing it is join a small engagement group and posted a couple of photos.

    My clothing, I used instaplus about 3 weeks ago to follow and like 40 people (account had used instaplus once before to do the same to 10 people a week prior) and instagram banned me from posting, deleting every new post I put up instantly and as soon as I reported it they've deleted the account and told me they won't be reactivating it.

    My fitness account has 2k followers and my clothing only had 600 - just thought I'd share that in case anyone had similar issues or to highlight how quickly they will respond to banning if there's any sort of problem

    you dun fucked up, sounds like you broke the rules.

    also sounds like you got banned for another reason, you probably got reported a few times for stealing content or something.

    I haven't stole any content or broken any of the template guidelines they sent me. Both accounts are commercial business where all content I make is 100% unique and far from offensive or even remotely worth reporting - it's purely 100% down to the automation tools.

    I can tell you that MP did not do anything, it was probably your settings that made your accounts look like spam.

    Ive been using Mp for a while now and i havent experianced bans like that.

    Sounds more accurate. I'm a little new to the settings in it so I've probably made a mistake.

    Is this sort of ban harsh for an account of such new status would u say? Thanks man
