You may soon turn off comments and remove followers on Instagram
Instagram has announced new features for their app which give users more control over their accounts.
The first one is the Comment Control Features which is good for users who always receive negative comments. What it does is it lets you turn off comments on any post. Just tap “Advanced Settings” before you post and then select “Turn Off Commenting.” You can also turn it back on anytime you want. In addition to comment control, users will also have the ability to like comments by tapping a heart icon next to any comment.
Next, we have the Ability to Remove Followers from Private Accounts. If you have a private account you can remove followers by going to your list of followers and tapping the … menu next to any person’s name. The person will not be notified that you removed them as a follower.
Lastly, we have the Anonymous Reporting for Self-Injury Posts. If you find someone on Instagram that may be thinking of injuring themselves, you can report it anonymously, and Instagram will connect that person to organizations that offer help.
The new features will arrive in the coming weeks.
