  • Can't create an instagram account. HELP!
    by /u/M4rtimdaboy on February 18, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    I was creating my Instagram account and I got to the part where I can change my name, I tried to change it but it wasn't working so I tried turning off instagram and trying again. When I tried creating another account it said that there was already an account with the same e-mail, so I went to log in and I put my e-mail and my password and then, it said that my account was suspended. I tried going to support and there was a page for people to complain if they were banned for no reason, so I tried that. I could fill out everything but there's a catch, it asks me to put my username in there and everytime I try it it says that that username doesn't exist. I don't know what to do, I really need an Instagram account because my school is doing a huge project with another school and everyone will be using instagram for it, and the deadline to give our instagram account is tomorrow. submitted by /u/M4rtimdaboy [link] [comments]

  • Old Facebook account keeping me from logging into my current one
    by /u/cft1848 on February 18, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    I created a Facebook account years ago to post Playstation videos I captured, but now I can’t log into my current active account because the old account is the only thing that comes up when I put in my phone number and email.

    I've followed about 100 users today, tweeted regularly (20-30 over the last few hours about the Brit awards), and got action blocked for adding users to a "list" My tweets still show up on search results on an incognito tab. Is my account safe? submitted by /u/D-CYPHR_ [link] [comments]

  • Random Almost-Complete Cessation in Facebook Interactions
    by /u/Peterwin on February 18, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Hey all, I’m currently managing social as part of my marketing job at a very small, niche financial services company. We’ve got a very small social presence and are working on bumping it up. Our posts don’t get a TON of interaction, but Q4 2019 we had double digit likes on each of our Facebook posts (we typically post links to financial articles on our website). Suddenly, as soon as Jan 1 hit, we’ve been getting less than 10 likes on everything we post. Many posts go with no likes or other engagement. We’ve only lost about 10 of our 3k followers since the beginning of the year. Any idea why we’re suddenly seeing nothing on Facebook? For reference, we currently aren’t using any paid ads or anything on any of our socials (long story), so literally nothing has changed in the last few months, that I can think of. submitted by /u/Peterwin [link] [comments]

  • Is there any value in @ mentioning or tagging your own account in a post?
    by /u/sam_ytc on February 18, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    For example, if you're running a company account and speaking about a blog post on of your employees authored: "@CompanyX Creative Director John Smith gives 5 tips for designing better products" Does the mention provide any optimisation? Is it providing any further encouragement for users to click-through to your company's account? Is it providing a poorer UX because it's more difficult to read the @ mention than simply using the company name? Can't seem to find any answer to this on Google. Many thanks. submitted by /u/sam_ytc [link] [comments]

  • Verifying an Instagram brand account (and a question on sticker creation)
    by /u/WriterPaperback on February 18, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    I oversee two Instagram Business profiles that have yet to be verified, despite repeated attempts (56K and 80K followers respectively). All of our channels are verified, but I continue to have issues here. We're a giant conglomerate with almost 800K followers across all social platforms. What am I doing wrong? We would like to create some .gif stickers for our audience to use on their Instagram stories, but now I'm freaking out that I can't do this because the account that would be submitting these for mass use isn't verified. Has anyone running large business accounts had any success verifying a profile? Any advice would be extremely appreciated. Thank you in advance. submitted by /u/WriterPaperback [link] [comments]

  • How to fund or start a serious business with FB page (3M flikes) and IG (240K follows) ?
    by /u/connectMK on February 18, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    So, I have a medical Facebook page with over 3 million likes and IG account with over 240K followers. Until last year, we had a website, we shared articles and related medical posts, and we were making from $700 to $1500 (sometimes) monthly. Let's say that was OK but we started to losing fans (maybe not losing too much but we weren't going up like we used to) and our post reach was going down. This was the main problem. We shared no more than 3 articles per day, in 4/5 hours range. So, like I sad that was last year and we stopped. Our page was also hacked 2 times and we manage to get it back twice. So far, we are only sharing images and some videos, related to the medicine. Most of the fans are medical students from 20 to 25 years. My question is: Is it possible to start something serious with this kind of stuff? Is it possible to run a business based on the fact that you have multi-million Facebook page + the IG account. If yes, where to start? Should I ask for investors or I should proceed with the blogging? Should we create some platform based on our category? I would really like a suggestions. I should also mentioned that the page had only 1 boost and that was like a year ago of 15/20 dollars. No promotions or any bots/generator was used to build it. submitted by /u/connectMK [link] [comments]
