No Place For Haters – Instagram To Block Trolls

Seems like Instagram will be no place for haters now! The app is now rolling out a fabulous feature using AI to wipe out all trolls and their nasty comments.

The photo-sharing application would remove comments that contained words and phrases it had specifically identified as offensive.

What is more, Instagram is switching the offensive comment filter on by default.

Users who post sexist and racist comments will now be automatically blocked and their vile comments will be deleted before they are seen by other users.

Instagram has been a platform where aggressive trolls find abode. Hence, the app has now taken strict measures to control users who target celebrities and vulnerable individuals with hateful comments.

“We believe that using machine learning to build tools to safeguard self-expression is an important step in fostering more inclusive, kinder communities,” said Kevin Systrom CEO & Co-founder, Instagram

Spam Comments to be Blocked

Instagram has also rolled out an AI spam-filtering system. The spam filter was secretly in order since last October, but it’s only being revealed this month.
The app is now using machine learning to recognize offensive or spam comments.
