Instagram’s Rolling Out New Tools to Remove ‘Toxic Comments’

Posted by @DanHinmon, Jun 30, 2017

Instagram’s rolling out some new moderation tools which will use machine learning to detect not only offensive language and spam, but also, comments that are considered discouraging for other users.

As explained by Instagram:

“Many of you have told us that toxic comments discourage you from enjoying Instagram and expressing yourself freely. To help, we’ve developed a filter that will block certain offensive comments on posts and in live video.”
