Here is the list of activities and factors that may cause you troubles:
- Too many likes and too much following.
Yes, every person who wants to promote a personal account, a blog or a business page knows for sure that the first step to success is so-called massliking (and massfollowing, of course!). But the problem is that if you are doing it too actively, Instagram will consider It to be rather suspicious and will block you as it has its limits.
According to the recent data, a number of user's daily actions can't exceed 1440 actions the list of which includes not only liking and following but also commenting and sending direct messages. There are also some concrete limitations per hour and per day with respect to each type of actions separately. Moreover, the limits for an absolutely new account will be lower than the limits for an account with its own wide audience. To stay on a safe side you need to bear in mind these limits, otherwise, you will find your page temporarily blocked from liking on Instagram as well as from performing other activities.
This reason for being banned has very similar grounds to those that we have discussed above. If you post photos extremely frequently, Instagram won't approve such a strategy and will consider your activity as spam or manipulation. If you are just beginning your promotion on Instagram I recommend you to publish 1 post in 1-3 days, it will be rather sensible not only for being protected from Instagram's algorithm that may ban you but also for avoiding the risk to become too annoying for your TA.
- Forgetting about copyright.
Never do it, never forget about the copyright on Instagram. Everything that you post should be owned by you or you should obtain permission from the author. If you post somebody else's pic, you should specify the name of the author or even tag him. In case you want to publish a video with music but you do not have the tights for this music, your post can be deleted. If the author reports you to the administration, your account can be blocked.
- Ignoring social media rules.
Just say no to naked bodies, acts of violence and other content that is not compliant with public norms and everything will be okay.
- Receiving complaints from users.
If people think that something is wrong with the content you post or with the actions you perform, they push the Report button.
- Using different devices and IP addresses.
If you use various devices for your account, the system may consider it as a hacked account and will block it to protect you. There can be different types of Instagram account blockage. The blocks can be:
- Temporarily. As a rule after 24 hours, the ban is lifted.
- Permanent. In case of serious violations, such a serious ban is introduced and it can really difficult to solve this issue.
- Partial-temporary. Some of the functions (commenting, for example) can be blocked but all others can remain active.
- Deletion of the account. All the post, as well as the account itself, will be deleted.
