Instagram

Instagram is a mobile photo-sharing application and service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately on the service, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr. Originally, a distinctive feature was that it confined photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid SX-70 images, in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras.

Today, were introducing two comment filters to help keep Instagram a safe place for self-expression: an offensive comments filter and a spam filter. These tools are the next step in our commitment to foster kind, inclusive communities on Instagram. Many of you have told us that toxic comments discourage you from enjoying Instagram and expressing yourself freely. To help, weve developed a filter that will block certain offensive comments on posts and in live video. You can turn this filter off in the ... settings menu from the profile and scroll to tap Comments. Well launch this in English first, but will offer it in more languages over time. The spam filter removes any obvious spam in comments written in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, French, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese. These filters are powered by machine learning, trained by our team to recognize certain types of offensive and spammy comments so you never have to see them. They will improve over time, enabling the communitys experience to improve as well. Our work is far from finished and perfect, but I hope were helping you feel safer and more welcome on Instagram.
