1.Why does my Instagram Follower Count stay the Same?

It is majorly because the followers you are getting follow random accounts as a trade of getting a follow back.

They unfollow you after a while. This is a trick used by Instagram users targeting to increase their follower list either for sale or publicity.

This makes you feel like your follower count stays the same.

Feel free to contact customer support for help incase this issue persists on your account.

2. How do I know if I am Shadowbanned on Instagram?

You can know that your Instagram account is Shadowbanned when you use hashtags in your posts but your posts don’t show up in the hashtags feeds except for the people that follow you.

This greatly reduces your reach because this means no one outside of your current followers will be able to discover you through hashtag feeds.

Inaddition Instagram will not push your content to the explore page or the recommended for you section on other peoples’ feeds.
