Jana Duggar has always been one of the quiet members of her famous family.
But while she hasn’t been a huge fan of the spotlight, for most of her career, Yana has maintained an open line of communication with fans.
But now Jana doesn’t seem to want anything to do with her 750,000 followers.
As many fans have noticed, the 33-year-old hasn’t posted on Instagram in over a year.
It’s been 56 weeks since Jana last shared an update with followers, and fans are wondering what this absence could mean.

They theorized that her social media hiatus may have been part of that strange experiment.
“Recently I was listening/watching a recorded podcast Jinger did and she was explaining how people in their childhood Gothard religion take these agreements to not stay with the opposite sex for 10-15 years and it’s so common,” one commenter wrote.
Another recalls that “Gothard introduced people who were celibate for a while.”
“You’re talking about kids, and even people in their 30s are encouraged to do it.”
Acolytes of Bill Gothard – who was Jim Bob’s personal spiritual leader before he was forced to resign in disgrace – are very secretive about their beliefs.
