Instagram Is Fighting Back Against Bullies Through New Anti-bullying Features
Instagram is once again trying to tackle the issue of cyber-bullying and fight back against bullies.
The company announced two new anti-bullying features; first one warns you when you post a hateful comment, and the second allows users to restrict certain people from publicly commenting.
These features were announced before during the F8 conference, where the company said that it was working on new warning labels.
While the feature doesn’t prevent people from actually leaving the comment, it encourages them to rethink what they are saying before posting.
“Are you sure you want to post this?” the message says. “We’re asking people to rethink comments that seem similar to others that have been reported.”
Instagram also added a new “restrict” feature that can be very helpful to those who are already facing bullying or harassment from certain people. The restrict feature can be seen as a middle ground between blocking and ignoring, having someone restricted will deprive them from leaving any comments, their messages will be directed straight to requests and they won’t be able to see your online status.
The feature is “testing in select countries,” according to Instagram, but will be widely available later this year.
Bullying has long been an issue especially for the photo-sharing app, now that it is growing more and more popular. A recent report even showed that bullying is more prevalent on Instagram than on Facebook, where users have to use their real names.
Hateful comments can be seen everywhere, privacy is limited especially for influencers and celebrities, so having those two features is certainly a smart move towards creating a safer environment.
According to the BBC, the features are being rolled out first for English-speaking Instagram users and shall be applied soon to other languages.
