You’re Not Shadowbanned, Your Content Just Sucks

The amount of primarily Christian or conservatives, female influencers I’ve stumbled across claiming to be shadowbanned whilst posting mid to boring content exploiting their children as part of their “ministry” is hilarious.

It’s no grand secret, nor conspiracy theory, that Instagram is in kahoots with Tik Tok (and YouTube with their “shorts”) to nuke our attention spans by forcing Reels upon us all, and they have done so by rewarding influencers who post short videos, or Reels. The algorithm simply isn’t pushing pictures as much, which is unfortunate because if I wanted to view Tik Toks, I would literally go on Tik Tok. I am (obviously) not on Tik Tok, because I want to look at pictures. I’m going to bet the majority of people using Instagram agree – like what is with social media companies trying to be alike?

That said, again this isn’t being shadowbanned and it’s not some grand leftist conspiracy to silence Christian voices for sharing views roughly half the population of the USA shares with them. One could talk to almost anyone, secular or not, who’s job is to exploit their children, spouses, and livelihoods for money (in the name of Jesus, of course) any influencer, and they will all probably say the same thing. Unless one possesses an extremely engaged fanbase (which usually doesn’t apply to influencers since most people probably only casually follow them), pictures aren’t going to pull a ton of numbers.

But rest assured, I will keep the faith by both refusing to create Reels and also by only liking pictures on Instagram. I will even go the extra step of hiding as many Reels as possible from my explore page. I will continue reporting ads on my main feed as spam (though I know I do this in vain)

Stay strong, my brothers and sisters. Resist the devil Reels and hopefully they’ll disappear.

    Lol so glad you said this! I’m on IG and TT and I see so many women complaining about being shadowbanned because of their beliefs but the truth is their content sucks and no one wants to watch it anymore. It’s usually really lame “influencers” who make those short videos or post pics where their kids just happened to stop by and be perfect. Or they complain about their husbands in the captions of pictures. Those posts are just so awful and it’s funny they don’t realise that and make them unironically.

      Right?! Their content is identical to like every other mommy bloggers and offers nothing insightful about anything they talk about lol, not even motherhood. I’m truly confused all these women think they’re shadowbanned when their content is boring and most people aren’t trying to fall asleep whilst scrolling through social media . Thanks for commenting!
