Instagram cracks down on bulliesFacebook expands Instagram's comment filter to block bullying language.
As we work to make it easier to share, connect, and explore across Instagram, it's equally important that it remains a safe and supportive space. That's why last year we launched a comment filter that automatically hides offensive comments. But that was just step one. Today, we're taking our common filtering technology even further, by launching a bullying filter that hides language intended to harass or upset people. [APPLAUSE] This type of language is complicated to identify, so we've advanced our machine learning systems to make it possible. So much of the Instagram experience is about how your connections and community can support you. We're committed to getting this right and we're excited for what's to come.
