Instagram Prompt Feature Fight Against Substance Abuse, a new feature which could soon roll out on the platform. Instagram officials implement this new feature on the platform so as to stop users who are looking to buy illegal drugs using certain hashtags.
We all know Instagram has a huge base of users. So, it is obvious that it contains some chain of Junkie users too. Instagram hashtags are so powerful that is can refine your search query on the platform. However, some users are using it to illegally buy drugs.
Therefore, Instagram officials have drafted out certain keywords like marijuana, heroin, cocaine etc under its hashtag feature. Once the user tries to enter these keywords under hashtag they will get a prompt with three options i.e. Get support, See post anyway, and, cancel. Moreover, the user has the full freedom to choose any of the three options.
If the user chooses the Get Support Option, the platform connects it to the De-addiction center of the specific country. Right now, this feature rolls out in the US only, however, soon it will available in all the countries.
