Instagram will warn you if you are about to be rude! New anti-bullying measures include ‘offensive content’ warning and ability to block specific users’ comments

Daily Mail

Instagram has launched new tools to help reduce the visibility of hateful comments on its platform.

The firm revealed on Monday that it has begun rolling out an AI-powered tool that will notify users if the comment they’re about to post may be ‘considered offensive.’ 

This will give that person a chance to review their comment and potentially reconsider.

Instagram has also added a new feature called Restrict that will give users greater control over the comments that appear on their posts, allowing you to hide comments from specific people without them finding out.

The idea is that this will help users protect themselves from online abuse by quietly taking action to limit a bully’s presence on their profile, without inadvertently provoking further conflict.

    “Will warn you if you’re about to be rude.” So now they read the future.

    I wonder if they see they’re own fate unfolding. Can’t be easy to see an angry mob marching toward you.
