Instagram will block offensive comments

30 June 2017
Good news for all those who suffer from online insults and harassment. The social network Instagram is introducing a new tool that allows you to hide offensive or inappropriate comments.You can turn on the new feature in your account settings, under "Comments" - just click on the "Hide inappropriate comments" switch. The innovation allows you to block offensive comments both in regular posts and during broadcasts. Unfortunately, for now, it can only shield users from inappropriate posts in English. In time, the number of supported languages will be increased. It is worth adding that Instagram has started to work with the spam filter. It will also work in both regular posts and broadcasts. Nevertheless, it will be able to recognize spam not only in English, but also in Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Arabic, Japanese and Chinese. Everyone can try the innovations in practice. To do this, it is necessary to install the current version of Instagram on your gadget.
