The change will also allow users to appeal if a post is deleted on suspicion of nudity, bullying, hate speech, drug sales and other charges. Instagram already bans profiles that publish a certain amount of inappropriate content, and from now on will exclude users who violate the guidelines in a given period of time.

It will then be possible to appeal the decision to remove the content in case of suspicion of nudity and pornography, harassment and bullying, hate speech, drug sales and terrorism. The social network will add the appeal feature to more categories in the future. Instagram ensures that if the feature is an accidentally deleted post, it will be restored and the violation removed from the account record.
Instagram removes accounts from the platform according to the number of times it has broken the platform rules. Now, profiles that violate the guidelines within a given time period will also be excluded. That is, if an account violates the rules more than once in a short time, it is more likely to be deleted from the social network.

According to the Instagram note, the changes were made to make the network safer: "Together with Facebook, we have developed policies to ensure that Instagram is a supportive place for everyone. These changes will help us quickly detect and remove accounts that repeatedly violate our policies. "
The modifications happen one day after the platform began testing the exclusion of the number of likes per post in Brazil. Both measures are justified as actions to make the social network a safer and user-friendly space. Regarding the new account deactivation policies, Instagram notes, in a statement, that the goal is to make users more responsible for what they post.
