Instagram is taking a stand against cyber-bullying.
"This change will help us identify and remove significantly more bullying - and it's a crucial next step since many people who experience or observe bullying don't report it", Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, said in a blogpost.
What do you think of Instagram's attempts to curb online bullying?
Facebook-owned photo sharing platform Instagram on Tuesday announced their latest tools to help combat bullying, including a new way to identify and report bullying in photos. It's unclear what else the technology can detect and whether it would work on images without captions.
The move will prevent users from posting defamatory notes as photos or images containing obscene, bullying or harassment-inducing content.
The new feature leverages machine-learning technology to detect bullying in posted photos, captions and comment, before forwarding the information to Instagram's community operations team to review.
The new function is rolling out now, and is expected to reach all users over the coming weeks.
Instagram has partnered with Maddie Ziegler, a New York Times bestselling author, dancer and actor to launch a kindness camera effect. Anyone who follows Ziegler will have the camera effect automatically. Do you agree with the use of artificial intelligence in wiping out inappropriate comments or photos on the social media app?
In selfie mode, hearts fill the screen; switch to the rear camera to see kind comments in various languages.
Beyond photos, Instagram has also added a bullying comment filter to live videos as part of efforts to keep a fun platform for all users.
"Maddie has been speaking out against online bullying since she started experiencing it and is one of many people in our community that uses Instagram to promote positivity", the blog said.
From today, Instagram also provides a new function with filter that filters out offensive comments - now you can enable it during online broadcasts.
