Big Brother Naija ex housemate Erica Elewedim revealed she has been shadow ban on Instagram for months.
According to her, some fans have been reporting her Instagram account, which has reduced the growth of her Instagram followers.
However, we think constant reporting of her Instagram page is not the only reason for her low Instagram followers.
Here is some reasons why BBNaija Erica is shadow ban.on Instagram.
Multiple Comments from one Instagram Account per post;
One of the reason Erica’s IG followers is not growing, is the multiple comments from her fans on a post.
Yes!, looking at some of Erica’s comment section, evidence shows that some of her fans comment more than 10 times per post in other to increase engagement on her Instagram posts.
Instagram reads it as spasm, cause it feels like the owner of the page bought IG followers and that the comment section has bot.
Using software/ App services that violates Instagram policies
One of the reason that Erica’s account might be on shadow ban is the use of software/ App services.
This includes the use of App and bots which helps grow followers such as Followlikers , Instafolloers or any other Instagram grow services.
Most times, celebrity buy followers in other to help increase in their Instagram growth. This can slow down Instagram growth cause Instagram has been working hard to remove bots from their platform.
Using a broken hashtag
Using a broken hostage can slow the growth of your page. For example, there are millions of people using Instagram and the only way Instagram cause control spam is by trying to dictate them through hashtags.
Looking at Erica’s Instagram account when she entered BBNaija, most her post every day were hashtag by her account manger at that time, which must have caused spamming.
Using too much hashtag per post can cause spamming especially for Erica whose account manger, created contents everyday for fans to keep them engaged during the reality show.
Most of Erica’s post while she was inside the BBNaija house was hashtag by account handler which can cause shadow ban.
Fast growing Instagram account;
Instagram often shadow ban an account which is growing very fast. Remember that Erica after she was disqualified from the BBNaija show, saw her IG account sky-rocked due to the shocking news of her leaving the show.
A fast growing account on Instagram meant be shadow ban cause most times, Instagram reads it as spam.
Instagram meant have flagged her account in other to reduce the sudden increase in followers.
Using copyright materials;
Using copyright Material can also cause shadow ban on Instagram account.
Remember that during Erica’s stay in Big Brother house, some of the songs use on her page to promote her, were copyrighted songs own by record labels and musicians.
Erica’s page meant not have been taken down for using copyrighted songs, but it sure can get her shadow banned on IG.
