NAME: Asun
PLATFORM & USERNAME: Instagram – @asun_lola_photo 
CENSORSHIP: Shadow ban

What reason was given for your ban?

None was given.

Why do you think your post(s) was censored?

I don’t really know the reason, but my posts are only shown to 30-40 people!.  it is more frustrating when you see the statistics because from that 40 people 28 go to see my profile, so the numbers are good on a small scale, but I want to reach more people. I’m trying to become a photographer and Instagram which is supposed to be good for visibility is just frustrating me.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

I was so frustrated for a while that I thought of leaving photography altogether, but I decided I’ll keep going with it.

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

I want people to know that when a tool is supposed to help you connect with people it doesn’t necessarily actually let people know that you exist, go and make it visible by yourself.
