Daily Buzz: Instagram Boosts Its Moderation Capabilities

Users of the popular social network can more easily delete negative comments

If your association is looking to better manage conversations taking place on its social platforms, you might want to give the latest update from Instagram a “like.”

New tools  will make it easier to manage comments on user posts, including the ability to delete multiple comments at once, pin your favorite comments, and limiting who can tag or mention your account.

“We know it can feel overwhelming to manage a rush of negative comments, so we’ve been testing the ability to delete comments in bulk, as well as block or restrict multiple accounts that post negative comments,” the company said in a blog post. “Early feedback has been encouraging, and we’ve found that it helps people, especially with larger followings, maintain a positive environment on their account.”

While intended to prevent bullying and harassment on Instagram, the new tools—which will appear on the iOS version first—may also be helpful for organizations concerned about brand safety on social media.
