8 WAYS YOU WILL GET BANNED ON INSTAGRAM
Many Instagram users believe they can post whatever they want about anyone and get away with it. Just because you’re posting online doesn’t mean that you’re anonymous, though. What’s worse is that other Internet users are working hard to expose these people by compiling evidence and reporting them to their schools or employers. It’s a big risk for no payoff if there is even any payoff at all. In fact, your actions may even backfire on you when someone files a defamation lawsuit on your behalf! So far, only one case of this sort has been filed, but in the future, there could be more lawsuits like that if we don’t learn how to just accept criticism in a mature way.
The lesson? Don’t harass people on Instagram even if you think nobody will find out. There are always ways for people to protect themselves against bullies online, and the person you’re bullying may not be as helpless as they seem.
How to ban any instagram account!!!
Instagram is a fun place where everyone can go to share photos with their friends. People should feel safe there! However, some users don’t agree with that and bully others based on one of these categories. They often pretend that they aren’t “hateful” because they only insult the identities of certain groups of people. But when it comes down to it, it still hates speech and needs to be stopped.
The lesson? Stop being hateful toward people who have different experiences or beliefs than you. Learn about others without attacking them, especially based on an aspect of their identity that they cannot change.
Here’s something else that many Instagram users don’t realize: when your account is private, Instagram still logs the IP address where each photo was uploaded from. This means that someone with enough technological know-how can track down the location of any device connected to Instagram at any time! If you’re a certain distance away from the school or workplace of someone you’re bullying
My Instagram was dying,’ Dasha Zhukova said to me over the phone from her office in Moscow. She then explained that after she had banned herself from posting for six months, she would be posting again starting on September 1st. ‘I need to find my own feeling about Facebook and Twitter,’ she said. ‘What I am going to say and how I am going to speak.
Zhukova revealed her banishment of social media yesterday afternoon as part of an interview with Russian TV network Channel One which aired last night (available online here), during which she discussed censorship in Russia and defended controversial artist Pyotr Pavlensky, whose performance art included setting his own scrotum on fire outside the headquarters of the FSB in Moscow. Zhukova, who is a trustee at Pavlensky’s Strelka Institute, said that she knew her comments would be censored by Russian television.
In general, Zhukova said that artists should not self-censor their work and should reject government grants from Russia’s Ministry of Culture (many artists claim they have to follow ministry guidelines or else simply won’t receive funding). ‘We are little crocodiles,’ she told Channel One. ‘If you don’t kill us, we will grow.’ Later in the interview, she was asked about whether to boycott the 2018 FIFA World Cup hosted by Russia next year as a protest against its human rights violations and anti-gay policies.
‘I will go,’ Zhukova said. ‘I think that Pyotr Pavlensky should perform there, and it would be the best form of protest.’ To not run afoul of Russia’s laws regarding public protests, which can result in a jail sentence from two to 15 days as well as fines ranging from $45 to $790 U.S., Pavlensky has applied for permission to stage his protest performance at the Luzhniki Stadium on September 2nd, 2018 during the opening ceremonies for FIFA World Cup matches between Russia and Saudi Arabia. He also plans to simultaneously publish a book titled Correspondence with François Hollande about human rights violations in Russia (the same day he set his scrotum on fire, Pavlensky sent a letter to President Hollande of France requesting help in securing the release of Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov).
‘I’m very happy that Pyotr is alive,’ Zhukova said. ‘We don’t know if he will do an action at Luzhniki Stadium.’ Screencaps from Channel One footage show photographs and video clips of Pavlensky being tortured while in jail. Just minutes after the interview aired, Channel One deleted it from its Facebook page (it’s archived here). The next day, they uploaded a different version with all mentions of Pavlensky removed. In response to questions about today’s interview, Channel One told Russian news agency RBC
Please know that when you “report” an inappropriate photo, the person who posted it never finds out. Instagram then looks into the matter to verify if a picture is actually inappropriate or not; if it is, they will delete it.
Instagram will now notify users when their account may be at risk of deletion, prompting them with a way to exit the company’s decision. In addition to explaining why an account is deleted, it will provide tips on how customers can avoid Instagram deleting their account in the future.
