The internet can be a very positive thing if it is used correctly. But, it can be negative if you use it incorrectly.
Now people can easily express their opinions on the internet, and not a few of them do it offensively.
Cyberbullying can continue to be a problem too and is no exception in the first image-based social media, like Instagram.
Instagram continues to take steps to prevent bullying and offensive comments on their app.
Now they rely on the AI to better prevent before it happening.
The company has launched a new feature called Restrict.
This feature is supported by the AI which will notify people if their comments can be count as offensive before they post it.
This intervention will give them the chance to reflect and cancel their comments. Instagram says that the first test of this feature shows that it pushes people to share something less painful once they have the chance to reflect.
After hearing from the users that they might be shy to block, stop following or report on their disturber because it can make the situation heated up. Especially, if they interact with that person in real life, now it will allow the users to basically warn them if they disturb.
After someone is restricted, their comments on the user’s comment will only be seen by that person.
The users will have the choice to make the restricted comments visible to others if they wish. Restricted people also cannot see when users are active on Instagram or they have read the DM. So, please use social media wisely.
