Instagram is by far one of the most popular social media platforms. As a result many businesses and brands utilise the platform to market their products or services to the public. The adult industry is no different many adult industry brands are posting their content on Instagram as part of their adult social media marketing strategy.
Third party posting tools
If you are using a third-party tool or app to post and manage your Instagram; you need to be aware that as of 2018 Instagram only allows tools and apps that are deemed trusted by Instagram themselves. Added to this, your page must be a business profile to use these trusted tools. If you are scheduling your posts on an untrusted tool and your profile isn’t a business one; you may be in trouble.
The naked truth
Hopefully this rule is pretty obvious, but we will include it any way for the late comers and newbies to the Instagram world. To put it as plainly as possible, don’t post naked pictures on Instagram. Instagram does not allow photos; videos and some digitally-created content that shows sexual intercourse; genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. They also do not allow some photos of female nipples. However, photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures are OK, too.
Instagram is really in favour of creating a genuine online community of people and as such has algorithms in place to try and detect bots and spammers. In order to not be accidentally mistaken for a bot or spammer, you have to watch the amount that you follow; like and post. The research our adult social media marketing team has found shows that you will get falsely accused if you:
- Follow or Unfollow over 60 people an hour.
- Like more than 300 posts an hour.
- Post over 60 comments an hour.
