Instagram can become quite a hostile place, although the social network owned by Facebook has been adding new features for some time to make it easier to protect you from abuse, such as restricting users and forbidden words. In the same vein comes now the possibility of delete several comments at once and more privacy options.
Instagram has begun to enable its users, first in iOS, to manage comments on a batch post, which will be supplemented in the future with the featured comments. In addition, the application adds more privacy options for control who can label you and mention.
Delete Batch Comments
We start with what’s already available, at least to Instagram for iOS users: batch commenting. If you need to delete a handful of comments, you don’t need to go through them one by one, but can use the Manage commentsSelect the ones you want to delete and then delete them all at once.
Similarly, Instagram is testing the possibility block and restrict multiple accounts at once. Comment management is activated from the three-point menu in the comment view of a post and allows up to 25 comments to be deleted at a time. It is currently active in iOS, with no news on the Android version.
In addition to being able to quickly remove negative comments, you will be able to highlight positive comments. You can do this by post comments on publicationsThe comments are displayed at the top of the comment view with an icon showing that they have been posted.
The posted comments are not yet available to all users, but will arrive “soon”, without an estimated date. It will be possible in principle post up to three comments to the top of a publication.
More privacy options
Finally, Instagram is adding two new privacy options that have long been needed. On the one hand, you’ll be able to choose who can label you in publicationsto choose from everyone, only the people you follow or no one.
Similarly, you will be able to control who can get you into a publicationto choose from everyone, only the people you follow or no one. In both cases, the person who tries to mention or label you and does not have permission, will know that your configuration does not allow it.
