Instagram Now Lets You Reduce Spam and Block Offensive Comments

Instagram Now Lets You Reduce Spam and Block Offensive Comments

Wanting to keep a safe place for self-expression, Instagram has introduced two new filter tools that will block offensive comments and reduce spam in comments.

In response to its users' requests, Instagram is making use of a filter that will prevent certain offensive comments to be posted on posts and live videos. At the moment, the filter is in English, but Instagram noted that they will offer more languages over time.

Despite this new feature, everything else will still appear as they normally do and users can still report comments, delete comments or turn them off as usual. This filter can be turned off by clicking the "..." settings menu if the users don't want it.

In addition, Instagram also launched a spam filter that is available in nine languages. It looks for any obvious spam in comments and removes those written in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, French, German, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese.

The two new filter tools are powered by machine learning. Instagram promises that these tools "will improve over time." Also, the company hinted support for more languages in the future.
