Introducing The New Instagram Anti-Bullying Feature

Apparently Instagram users are being bullied on a daily basis especially celebrities and popular folks. Hence the new feature that helps to combat harassment on Instagram.

Instagram believes that its new anti-bullying tool that prompts users to pause and rethink the comment they are on the brink of post, might facilitate scale back abuse/bullying on the platform.

This new feature uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify when a user is trying to post an unfriendly comment and it will prompt the user and ask if they really want to go ahead and post the comment or if they want to reconsider deleting it.

How Instagram Anti-Bullying Feature Works

This feature uses a method called “shadow banning”, which prevents the person being banned from taking counter measures against the ban since they won’t know they have been banned.

Once a user has been restricted , the comments posted by that user will only be visible to themselves, though you can choose to make a restricted person’s comments visible to others by approving their comments
