Let’s get real posting a pretty picture of yours on Instagram can be a little scary for you. Because sharing a part of your life with the world is a pretty vulnerable thing to do. So it really feels very bad when someone comes along and leave a pretty harsh comment on your Instagram picture.
Yeah, you can report them and Instagram can take down their content, but bullying is not that much simpler to be dealt with.But there is nothing to worry about Instagram is going to launch a new Anti-Bullying feature.
According to Head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri :
“One of the features uses machine learning technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions and send them to our Community Operations team to review”
And as you may know, there are always bad people everywhere so when someone gets live on Instagram they get bad comments so, to get over such comments Instagram is adding an anti-bullying comments filter on live videos.
Along with that, there is another feature called the kindness camera effect.
About this feature, Instagram’s Head said that:
“Swipe to open the camera, tap the face icon at the bottom and choose the new camera effect. In selfie mode, hearts will fill the screen — and you’ll be encouraged to tag a friend you want to support.
Your friend will receive a notification that you mentioned them in your story. They can share it to their own story or use the camera effect to spread kindness to someone else.
If you switch to the rear camera, you’ll see an overlay of kind comments in many languages.”
This is a very good step by Instagram in the field of bullying as online bullying is a big problem and there isn’t much that a person can do in order to remove those photos except to report and to see Instagram actually giving attention to online bullying is a good initiative.
