New Delhi: Instagram on Moday will be rolling out a feature which will empower its users to moderate comments on its photo-sharing platform.

In other words, Instagram users can filter words they would not like to see in the comments on their posts.

Announcing the new feature, CEO and co-founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrome said,“To empower each individual, we need to promote a culture where everyone feels safe to be themselves without criticism or harassment.

It’s not only my personal wish to do this, I believe it’s also our responsibility as a company,” Kevin wrote on the company’s blog.

Explaining the keyword moderation tool, Kevin wrote: “When you tap the gear icon on your profile, you’ll find a new Comments tool. This feature lets you list words you consider offensive or inappropriate. Comments with these words will be hidden from your posts.”
