Just last week, we talked about how Instagram was giving celebrities the opportunity to filter and moderate comments. Now we hear that the platform will be giving all its users a similar new feature on their accounts.

In fact, Instagram will also soon be allowing users to turn off comments altogether. Everyone finds different words offensive, so Instagram is creating a tool that allows users to filter out specific words – just like the feature it gave some celebrities recently. It will also allow them to turn off comments on individual posts only, or on their accounts in general.

If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:

Instagram‘s head of public policy, Nicky Jackson Colaco explained that the company’s goal

is to make Instagram a friendly, fun and, most importantly, safe place for self expression.

and that it has

slowly begun to offer accounts with high volume comment threads the option to moderate their comment experience.

It’s not entirely clear if the feature is the same as that given to celebrities recently, but we do know that they are getting a feature first, within the next few weeks. Ordinary users should be seeing changes within a few months.
