Instagram already uses AI to track and remove harmful content. But now a new feature will force users to pause before posting a potentially offensive comment. "This intervention gives people a chance to reflect and undo their comment," says Instagram head Adam Mosseri. “From early tests of the feature, we have found that it encourages some people to undo their comment and share something less hurtful once they have had a chance to reflect,” he says.
There's also a new feature that will pop up that says "Restrict," which will make it harder for bullies to get recognition from their targets. This measure will make it so abusive comments from flagged users are invisible to you, and make your current status unknown to your offender. So basically you won't see these comments. I'm not sure how I feel about everyone else being able to see these comments but me. Hopefully when they finalize testing, this feature will get rid of bullies completely. 😤
