There are different methods to know if any user has restricted another in the Meta application.
Digital applications over time have become tools that allow users to interact in different scenarios. Likewise, among the most common are social networks, which have been positioning themselves since the beginning of the new century.
|This is how you can tell if another user restricted you on Instagram|
In this sense, Instagram has positioned itself as one of the most used applications in the world, because users can share a bit of their lives. Likewise, it is an ‘app’ that allows you to keep abreast of what’s new with celebrities.
Similarly, the application that belongs to Meta, in one of its most recent updates, launched a function called ‘Restrict user’, whose purpose is not to block other users.
Likewise, it limits the possibility of interaction that a person has with another user in the app . In that order of ideas, the user will be able to continue appreciating the stories and publications, but the reactions to said content will be limited.
However, there are three methods to know if another user has taken this measure and they are the following:
Check activity status:
The first thing to do is to have the ‘Activity Status’ option enabled. To carry out this process, you must open the application, go to the profile and open the ‘Settings’; then click on ‘Privacy’ and, immediately afterwards, enable the mentioned option.
Send a DM:
When one person restricts another, new direct messages will be redirected to a message request folder instead of a normal chat. Similarly, the restricted user will not receive any notification. Finally, the person must accept the message to be able to read it.
Check the comments:
In order to carry out this procedure, you must have a second account. In this sense, the user must leave a comment on one of the publications and then log in with the second account and check if said comment appears; if it does not appear, it is most likely that it is restricted.
How to know if a person has muted another on Instagram?
Currently, many people decide to share intimate or sensitive content that may make other users or the same person who shared it uncomfortable for fear of being leaked. However, the app has a host of features to protect privacy, such as blocking private messages or muting people.
When a user is muted, it means that you will no longer be able to see that person’s content, i.e. their stories or feed posts . However, since this is not a ban, you will still be able to access the muted person’s profile.
However, the platform does not send a notification if someone mutes you and there is no feature to let you know. Now, the Mundo Deportivo portal discloses methods to find out this information.
However, if you suspect a user has muted you, a good way to find out is through story interaction; that is, if this person was someone constant in interactions, but now they do not, it may be a sign that they have been silenced. This method can be verified if the user continues to show activity on the platform by continuing to publish their content.
Another method of verifying that you have been silenced on the social network is through the interaction with the posts. If the person used to like and even comment, but no longer does and continues to show activity in the app, it is likely that the content does not appear in the feed , that is, they have been muted.
