Instagram now lets you choose who will comment on your posts

Instagram is trying to make its application more beautiful

Instagram

The company adds a new feature that lets you control who can comment on your posts. It also adds new sources on mental health, more friendly filtering of comments and new "politeness" stickers.

All the changes aim to "keep Instagram a safe and positive place for individual expression," the company said in a blog post.

However, the best feature is the control of the comments. Now, users with public accounts will have much more control over who can and can not comment on their posts.

Previously, Instagram's choices were all or nothing: you had to either allow comments from everyone or disable comments in general. Now, the options on the post, include options such as limiting comments to your accounts, your followers, or a combination of both.

You can also block comments only from specific accounts, which will help prevent some harassment in the service.

Instagram also launches the filtering system, which automatically prevents abusive comments and spam for more languages. Now the feature is available to users of Arabic, French, German, and Portuguese applications.

The company also updates mental health resources with a new anonymous reporting function for live videos. The new feature allows users to report when a user appears to require external support. They will then see a message with links to various resources, including a help line.

Finally, Instagram will present a set of "courtesy" stickers in the coming months to encourage users to post positive comments.

Το Instagram επικρίθηκε πρόσφατα για το ότι δεν έκανε ενέργειες για να περιορίσει την παρενόχληση και την κατάχρηση στην πλατφόρμα του, γι ‘αυτό άρχισε να αυτοματοποιεί ένα μεγάλο μέρος του φιλτραρίσματός του, νωρίτερα αυτό το έτος.
