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.
