The move comes alongside new kindness camera effects on the photo sharing app in a bid to promote more positivity, as the United Kingdom prepares to mark Anti Bullying Week in November and the USA carries out its National Bullying Prevention Month throughout October. Any unkind posts that are detected through the new machine learning technology will be sent to Instagram's Community Operations team for human review.
Instagram is continuing its efforts to combat bullying on the platform.
The tool - according to the company - will be more beneficial in removing bullying.More news: Malaysia to abolish colonial-era Sedition Act, death penalty
In particular, to identify offensive and aggressive content will use technologies based on artificial intelligence, reports kommersant.
It is also aimed at protecting Instagram's youngest members, since teens often experience high rates of online torment.
The feature has already started rolling out and will continue rolling out over the next few weeks.
The blog post by the company head also reveals that the anti-bullying filter will soon be applicable to live video as well.More news: Unscathed by Hurricane Michael, Lake City friends test their luck
"We are now adding this filter to comments on live videos to ensure that "Live" remains a safe and fun place to authentically connect with your friends and interests".
This feature works in the same vein to the anti-bullying comment filter that was rolled out earlier this year for Feed, Explore and Profile.
Instagram has partnered with Maddie Ziegler, a New York Times bestselling author, dancer and actor to launch a kindness camera effect. This step was very much needed as there are people who experience this bullying but don't report it. For using the camera effect, swipe right on your Instagram app to open the camera, tap at the face icon at the bottom, and select the new camera effect. In selfie mode, hearts will appear on the screen. And on switching to rear camera, you will see an overlay with kind comments in various languages. Users are encouraged to tag a friend when using it.More news: Koepka named PGA Tour Player of the Year
