Instagram finally lets users disable comments

On Dec. 6, Instagram announced another round of updates, one of which includes the option to remove friends when you have a private account.

As well, Instagram is giving those with private accounts a little more control by allowing them to remove approved followers without blocking those followers. You can also tap the ... menu any time after posting to turn commenting back on. As well, Instagram is adding a way to "heart" individual comments, bump followers from a private account, and anonymously report certain posts. In the coming weeks, you'll be able to turn off comments on any of your posts.

'These updates are a part of Instagram's ongoing commitment to keeping the platform safe and welcoming for everyone, ' said a statement from the app Facebook-owned firm. Previously, public accounts - accounts that any user could follow - had to block users, which notified them of removal.

Instagram comments are getting more like Facebook. That's why Instagram will soon debut an option for users to turn off comments on individual posts. As Systrom explained, some comments aren't always welcome, and if any particular content attracts a lot of negative comments, it's probably best to disable the commenting feature altogether. To access this new option after updating the app, simply click on "Advanced Settings" before posting and select "Turn Off Commenting".

Secondly, Instagram introduced the ability to like comments by tapping the famous heart icon next to the selected comment.

"Liking lets you show support and encourages positivity throughout the community", he wrote in a blog post announcing the change. An anonymous reporting tool is rolling out for users who see self-injury posts.

Systrom also reiterated that Instagram had recently enabled tools allowing users to anonymously report people who may be at risk for suicide or self-harm. "We have teams working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, around the world to review these reports".
