Instagram Adds Filter to Comments
Instagram users can now filter out offensive words in comments. The company is rolling out a new tool that allows users to list words they find offensive. Words added to the list will not appear in comments below posts. Users can create their own word list, or use a default selection of words offered by Instagram.

We need to promote a culture where everyone feels safe to be themselves without criticism or harassment." Users already have the ability to delete offensive comments as well as report abuse and block accounts. The filter is built into the settings tools and will be available to all users soon.

Fact - not everyone gets along or appreciates the same things, so instead of dealing with it like adults and appreciating that we can say what is on our mind, this SJW mentality has completely alienated society by saying they dont believe in something like freedom of speech, and criticizes our constitution by doing so - yet at the same time, want safe platforms so they can spout of...
