Instagram to let users moderate comments on their own accounts
While Instagram has yet to roll out this new feature to the average Joe and Jane, the social media site is giving celebrities and high-volume subscribers the opportunity to test this before the general public. Eventually, all subscribers will be given this editing tool over the next few months. Users will also be able to decide whether to accept comments on a post-by-post basis.
With over 500 million monthly users, Instagram has been hearing about subscribers facing insults and getting harassed by other users in the comments section of a post. By putting the power to moderate the comments into the hands of its users, Instagram doesn't have to get involved or take a stance on a particular comment.
