Shadowbanned means your content is restricted or blocked without any warning or notice given to you. It usually happens when a user’s account is muted or blocked, limiting their interaction with other users. You might see lesser engagement on your posts when shadow-banned, your recent posts and activities become hidden, and your search appearance might disappear.
Shadow banning usually suppresses religiously or politically conservative opinions on social media. Most social media platforms deny the existence of shadowbanning, but it is evident that they downgrade or restrict accounts that create content that violates their community guidelines.
Removal from any Facebook group or Instagram algorithm showing lesser engagement on your posts can be a possible case of shadow-banning.
