It can be so frustrating when you’re just scrolling through Instagram and out of now where you see an offensive comment, photo or video. But guess what, no need to fear, Instagram is here to help!
Instagram announced on Monday that it had begun a new feature to help notify people when they post a photo or video that might be considered offensive, giving people the “chance to pause and reconsider their words before posting.”
How it works now is: when someone writes a caption for a feed post and the AI detects the caption as potentially offensive, the user will receive a prompt informing them that their caption is similar to those reported for bullying. They will have the opportunity to edit their caption before it’s posted.
Way to go to Instagram!
