3.1.2021 | Instagram Adds New 'Restrict' Option to Limit the Exposure of Trolls and Cyberbullies
Recently, Instagram chief Adam Mosseri announced that a key aim for Instagram is to create a platform where all users feel safe to express whatever they want, without the fear of criticism, negative comments, or cyberbullying.
Trolls and abuse are a problem for every social media platform and Instagram is looking to take a lead on this and has made new significant changes over the course.
That's where Instagram's latest new feature comes in. This week, Instagram is rolling out a new option called 'Restrict', which will give users the authority to restrict someone who has given a comment on their posts. Once “Restricted”, the person commenting is the only one who will see their comments. You can also tap the “See Comment” button and approve it so that the other users will also see the said comment, delete, or ignore it.
