NEW INSTAGRAM UPDATE

Every Instagram user will now be able to filter out abusive comments and messages they receive as part of a new update unveiled by the social Media platform.


Sporting stars and footballers that play in the English Premier League revealed widespread racist, sexist and other forms of abuse sent to them on Instagram in recent months sparking outrage.


Football clubs and a number of football players have participated in social media blackout in protest at tech firms and their policing of such content.


Instagram which is owned by Facebook has now announced a new tool that will allow users filter direct message request from people they do not follow if the messages contain offensive emojis, phrases or words.


The tool will focus on the message request section of direct messages because this is where abuse normally comes from. "Hidden words", a new section of the app's privacy settings has been created to house the tool which can be applied to comments under an account's post.


The content policy manager of Instagram, Fadzai Madzingira stated they take very serious their commitment to protect users from abuse whether racist, sexist or homophobic and the new tool is part of Instagram updates to protect the community.
