EDIT: The Serenity in Chains Instagram Account has been reactivated!
Instagram has (hopefully temporarily) suspended the Serenity in Chains account.
What does that mean?
Well, it means that you can’t interact or even see anything on the Serenity in Chains Instagram right now. They’ve wiped it from the public system. You won’t be able to find it in search, or your ‘following’ section of your account.
As I said, I hope the suspension is temporary (and I’ve found some articles suggesting it’s part of a greater potential glitch), so don’t go ‘unfollowing’ Serenity in Chains… if you can even do so.
Why did Instagram suspend the Serenity in Chains account?
Well, I’d like to know the same thing.
When Instagram enacts a suspension, all they provide by way of information is this screen:
Their reasoning states “Your account, or activity on it, doesn’t follow our community guidelines” which is incredibly vague. If it is NOT part of a widespread glitch, my suspicion is their AI got upset about this post:
What’s wrong with it you ask?
Probably the word ‘murder’ in it. 🤷♀️ The Meta AI that runs their algorithms tends to be a little indiscriminate about what it considers ‘improper’ for their platforms. Especially for sex-positive businesses.
At this point, it’s a waiting game, while Meta either fixes their glitch or reviews the Serenity in Chains account. I’ve already gone through their ‘We believe you made a mistake’ process, and hopefully they will get everything restored over the next couple of days.
Want to help speed the process along?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request that they reinstate the Serenity in Chains Instagram page, and continue to allow Sex Positive businesses to spread their messages of acceptance on the platform.
