Instagram has announced its new tool which would help to fight to bully, this includes a new way to identify it and then report bullying. They will also introduce a new camera effect as a feature which would spread kindness in Instagram stories.
How to detect Bullying on Photos
They are using a machine learning technology which would proactively detect bullying in the captions or the photos and will be sent directly to the community operations team to review. This positive change will help them to identify the bullying and remove it. This step was very much needed as there are people who experience this bullying but don’t report it.
A few months back Instagram introduced a bullying comment filter which proactively detects it and hides comments from the feed. Now, this filter is going to be added on live videos to keep it safe and fun going.
