Instagram Brings Sensitivity Screen Feature to stop auto exposing Inappropriate contents. Here, Inappropriate contents are suicide, self harm and so on. This feature works by blurring out such images or video Thumbnails that help any user to perform such action.
Instagram head Adam Mosseri reveals he get this idea from an incident back in 2017. Back in Year 2017, a 14 Year British Girl, Molly Russell commit suicide by following and getting idea from multiple self harm Instagram Accounts. Taking lessons from that Incident Instagram now block every feature (like hashtags, Images, Account Recommendations) that anyhow helps user to connect with self harm activities.
Note that In the last week of January this year, UK Health secretary Matt Hancock warns Instagram to bring such feature. He not just warn Instagram but also to the Facebook and Twitter. He says to bring such feature on the platform or face any legal action.
The feature is already live in India and this is all about this new update. Don’t forget to let us know your opinion in the comment section below.
