Instagram to Offer New Tools to Fight Online Abuse

Instagram announced that it would be providing more tools for users to protect themselves and others from online abuse by allowing them to remove comments and filter out certain followers. The ability to remove comments will be an add-on to previous efforts: About three months ago, Instagram announced that it would allow users to filter out abusive words from their comments, and the platform has been experimenting with comment removal on high-profile accounts since this summer.
