Instagram Releases New Features to Combat Cyber Bullying
Earlier this week, Instagram released two new features to combat cyberbullying.
The first feature uses artificial intelligence to flag comments that may be considered offensive. In those cases, users will get a “Are you sure you want to post this?” message with an option to undo their comment before it posts. This gives users a chance to reflect and think before they say something hurtful to another user.
The other feature is the ability to silently restrict a users ability to interact with your account. If this is used, their comments on your posts will only be visible to them unless you approve a comment for general consumption.
Instagram is committed to making a safe, engaging, and fun community for all of its users. Making the network a more inclusive place for users to interact with one another is good for all of us.
