Instagram NEWS - some hashtags are now #BANNED

Instagram seems to be trying to control its content with this new list of forbidden hashtags, some being more understandable than others..

Nick Drewe, an expert in social networks explained to the Huffington Post that “There are two levels of censorship. Hashtags can either have an outright block, and return no results, or a sort of ‘soft,’ often more temporary censorship with around 30 results.”

So what it means is, if you try to look up something obviously inappropriate you'll see a nice ''No hashtags found" pop up on your screen. That we can stand behind; some content can be offensive and the platform could really use some supervision as some of us use it for either business purposes or to share our plain love for photography.

As you go through the entire list, you might find yourself quite confused as to why some of them are restricted. For example if you type "instamood" as your searched tag, you'll notice that only a few top posts are going to be accessible for browsing while the recent ones are going to be hidden from public view. 

As expected some people are not letting this new censorship restrain them from fully  expressing their thoughts and are already coming up with ways to fool the system by adding or changing the accent mark on the words we aren't supposed to use or by simply adding extra spaces between the letters.

Some photographers and active Instagram users claimed to have gotten shadow banned (click here to read more on that) and this new update might just be the reason why. 

Run through these and make sure no to use them!
