Instagram Now Lets You Limit Who Can Comment on Photos for its 800 Million Users

Instagram has announced it has hit a milestone of 800 million users, with 500 million daily users, while also detailing a new way to limit comment on your posts, for public accounts.

Within the app’s settings, under Comments, users can now choose who can comment on picture, choosing from:

  • Everyone
  • People you follow and your folloewrs
  • People you follow
  • Your followers
Also, both public and private accounts will be able to block accounts from commenting on your posts.

Today also expands Instagram’s offensive comment filter beyond English, to now support Arabic, French, German and Portuguese.

Instagram says it will also province mental health resources, allowing viewers to report live broadcasts, if they witness someone “going through a difficult time.” The social network will then send out a message to that person, noting they have resources available 24/7.

In the next few months, Instagram will also turn walls in cities around the world into murals with new #KindComments, introducing a new heart-shaped sticker.
