Instagram Update Targets Negative Posts

While social media can be a fun, positive place, it can quickly turn into a dark place for some of us. All of us are aware of cyberbullying and other forms of cybercrime. In light of this, Instagram has introduced a new update to the app, according to which negative posts that may involve promoting violence or bullying will get displayed lower on the feed and stories. Instagram already strictly regulated content on their platform based on their set Community Guidelines. Their recent update follows the same footsteps by taking more decisive actions against content that contains hate speech or content that encourages violence and bullying. Previously, Instagram also eliminated or reduced content that consisted of misleading data. Furthermore, accounts posting such information will be less prominent on the app.
