Instagram wants to keep bullies out of its comments

Instagram introduces bullying filter to hide comments that harass users

Video chat allows you to talk to more than one person.

Instagram has activated a new bully filter that will automatically prevent toxic comments from appearing on posts. In an attempt to finally censor bullies on the platform, Instagram finally uses the nuclear option and plans to use filters to stop any offensive language from getting to their intended destination. The reason behind this feature was to protect users from targeted groups.

Third parties and brands will also have their own filters.

The app's users can expect updates to "Stories" and "Explore". He stressed the feature can be disabled in the Comment Controls center in the app. And the final bit of news was that Instagram will aim to foil digital bullies via a new AI-infused algorithm that "hides language meant to upset or harass people". Doing this will ensure Instagram remains an inclusive, supportive place for all voices.

Instagram, like other social media sites including Twitter and YouTube, has become an easy place to shame or offend, something the company acknowledged previous year.

Xerox CEO to Resign After Activist Pressure on Fujifilm Deal
The two companies had agreed to the joint venture in January but that deal appears to be under threat. Xerox said it chose to settle given the risks and uncertainty of prolonged litigation.

"This new filter hides comments containing attacks on a person's appearance or character, as well as threats to a person's well-being or health", Systrom wrote.

Systrom said the filter will alert Instagram of repeated offenders so they can take appropriate measures.

"Protecting our youngest community members is crucial to helping them feel comfortable to express who they are and what they care about", Systrom added.

Instagram will host a Kindness Prom this Saturday to celebrate people who spread positivity in the platform.
