Instagram Disabled My Account-No 2
If you saw my video on Friday you know that I woke up and discovered that Instagram disabled my account and I have no idea why.
The message is that I have violated their terms of service but I've read through them and I definitely haven't. I've never had one report that any content or comment was flagged or reported.
I spent the weekend doing research on this and it turns out that this has been happening to A LOT of people. I think the statistic was that 85% of the accounts never violated any of the terms. It can take hours-months to get your account back. For one person it took 8 months of filing a report every day with Instagram.
I'm honestly not so worried about the account itself but I regret not ever downloading my content because I can't get that back. When I first started my IG account it was personal so I have a lot of pictures of my kids when they were younger on it that are now gone.
Yesterday, I spent a couple of minutes and downloaded my personal & business content off of Facebook. You want to back it up like you would do your computer.
I HIGHLY recommend you all to do this too.
No one is immune to being randomly shut down and you don't want to lose any of your memories.
