Instagram is about to give all of its users more comment control

Posted by @DanHinmon, Aug 1, 2016

Here’s what’s coming for personal Instagram accounts (these new tools sound similar to the ones recently rolled out for business users):

While Instagram already lets users delete comments made on their posted photos, the idea that highly offensive messages can sit there for some time before being noticed can leave some Instagrammers feeling uncomfortable.

So in its latest effort to keep the site clean and its burgeoning community happy, the company will soon roll out new tools that’ll let users switch on word and phrase filters to reduce the chances of a rude comment appearing in the discussion beneath their photo. It’ll also be possible to turn off comments altogether on a post-by-post basis.
