New Instagram Feature Helps Curb Harassment

A new feature on Instagram is going to be rolled out in hopes of curbing online harassment.

The feature will allow anyone with a public account to choose who can comment on their posts, reports Fast & Co. Comments can be blocked entirely or people can pick and choose who can comment based on followers.

Instagram will also offer “support to anyone live-streaming a story that suggests they are suicidal or may injure themselves or others.” Those watching the stream can alert Instagram.

Reps said that they will have teams on call 24 hours a day working around the world to help.
