Have any of your social media posts or accounts been taken down?

We want to hear from you and help you feel safe to express yourself on the internet. If you have experienced the removal of content or account on any social media platform you think was unjust, please fill out this quick form.
In some cases, OIHC can offer resources to assist you if applicable. Tell us about your experiences so we can help you understand the decision and/or navigate the appeal process. Or if you just want to vent about previous experiences, we’re here to listen to that too.

How it works

How will OIHC use your data?

If you choose to submit anything on the form, you will consent to have this information available to OIHC staff for academic research. We will use your data in the following ways:

  • Analyze themes of social media content takedowns and account bans which would be published for research conferences, academic papers, and blog posts on the website
  • Present themes to social media policy makers to drive positive change to protect marginalized users
  • If applicable, we will reach out to you to provide further resources to help you with your social media content takedown or account ban

When will OIHC contact you? 

Please allow OIHC three business days to get back to you for a response.

OIHC will only contact you if all of the following conditions apply:

  • You have indicated you would like to be contacted
  • We have reviewed your response and believe we can further help you with thinking about restoring your content
  • We have reviewed your response and would like to speak with you further about your experience

How will OIHC protect your data?

Data will be anonymized (we will remove your name and any personally identifiable information) before it is presented in any publications (e.g. research conference, academic paper, website). If you ultimately choose not to participate, then none of the information you provide will be saved or stored.
