In a bid to address bullying on the platform, Instagram has made it easier for people to remove negative comments and control who can tag them. Accounts now have the option to delete comments in bulk—a feature most useful for high engagement profiles or accounts targeted by trolls. To combat the malicious use of tags and mentions, account holders can limit tagging permissions to everyone, people they follow, or no one.
Today we’re sharing new ways to control your Instagram experience. ❤️
Now you can delete multiple comments and block or restrict multiple people at once. You can also manage who tags or mentions you on Instagram.
