I recently read an article about Instagram removing accounts that are perceived as 'competition', and other factors. I have always had my theories but more and more my theories are becoming reality. I theorized that my California_budz page has become a red flag for Instagram since I organically gain my engagement and I work with other companies for promotional purposes (*that Instagram would rather have them paying Instagram, not me).
This is a huge frustration and I only forsee more and more challenges using Instagram. I won't stop using the social media app but I will definitely be taking a step away from things there. Keeping ALL my social media updated while experimenting with this new route.
