The Social Media is used for many things as we know. Some for business, some just to have fun and while away time. Spam and offensive comments are what can’t be easily taken away from the Social Media. As we see people use abusive and offensive comments on other social media platforms, so it is on Instagram which the issue is already been looked upon.
Although there were some options Instagram introduced which is with reporting any offensive post or comment also blacklisting people that comment with offensive words in your post comment section.
The news is that you don’t have to go through all those options again as Instagram takes a step to curb the issue by introducing two new features. The first is the offensive comment filter while the second will automatically block spam comments on Instagram. According to Instagram, this new feature relies on a learning machine which is expected to get better and better as time goes on.
For now, the offensive comment filter is available in English while the spam filters are available for nine (9) languages namely; English, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, French, German, Russia, Japanese, as well as the Chinese.
From my view, this feature can be aggressive from now since it relies on a learning machine. For those that don’t need it, you have the option to disable it in App settings.
What do you think about this feature?
