Hidden post

Definition

A hidden post is only visible to the user who created it and the community’s administrators and moderators. Posts can be hidden by their creators for privacy or other reasons, or by admins or moderators for violating community standards. In the latter case, users might be notified that their post has violated the community’s terms of service, or they may be left unaware that their post has been hidden, a practice known as shadow banning.
