Instagram has become one of the most popular social media platforms for teenagers and young adults.
Earlier this morning, Instagram announced that they will be turning on their advertising API which will allow marketers to begin buying Instagram ads and planning their Instagram marketing in a more automated fashion. In addition to the new advertising API announcement, Instagram has decided to ban the hashtag #EDM. Just days ago when Instagram banned the hashtag #Curvy, Instagram gave the official statement “We block (i.e. make unsearchable) certain hashtags when they are consistently being used to share images and videos that violate our Community Guidelines,” the rep added. “In this case, #curvy was being used to share content that violates our guidelines around nudity.”
No word as to why #EDM has been banned as of yet.
