Instagram now allows you limit who can comment on your pics

Instagram is launching a handful of new tools today to combat harassment and help its community members.

The first of those is much requested: the ability to limit who can comment on your photos. Instagram now gives everyone with a public account the ability to limit comments to only people they follow, only their followers, or both their followers and people they follow. 

Public and private accounts will continue to have the ability to turn off comments entirely, but it appears to still be on a post-by-post basis.

Instagram is also expanding its offensive comment filter to four other languages: Arabic, French, German, and Portuguese. The tool launched in English in June, and is supposed to use AI and machine learning to improve over time and take into account both the wording of a comment and the context it’s being written in.
