If something has caused the social networks is that there is more closeness between people, celebrities and relatives. But at the same time maintaining a certain anonymity because there was no physical contact, but through a virtual profile that also often pseudonyms and no personal images are used by the followers.

These results in the abuse of freedom at times, that offensive commentaries against these celebrities are released without considering the risks and legal consequences that may ensue. But Instagram, as some of their peers, has already taken action on the matter.

Taking advantage of its contextual technologies, the Mark ZuckerbergĀ“s Company has released on Instagram a filter that is capable of automatically detecting comments with offensive content.

It requires manual interaction by the victim for the interpretation of the following messages offensiveness in more particular fields, but in a volume of thousands of daily reviews is able to act alone for the majority stake.

In more practical terms, what it does is to identify offensive content based on previous reports, and proceed to the automatic removal.

It is a function in the test phase so far, and only available to users with greater volume of followers on the social network. That is, those currently are available only for famous artists.
And allowing them to report or denounce offensive messages, and then those are interpreted as annoying and new comments are scanned for possible violations.

In a way it works as filters against offensive words, but this new feature does not have a dictionary of unauthorized words. Simply based on user complaints victim, the algorithm takes references from the reported content and uses it to detect future messages also offensive. However, the specific details of the operation have not been disclosed yet.

The owners of a business profile in Instagram now have a new tool in the settings menu that will allow them to moderate comments. The system will automatically block words or phrases that have been reported very often and does not allow pages administrators to determine which are offensive words, but makes the application itself do this in based on reports that are accumulating.

Otherwise companies could censor criticism in the comments. In this way offensive commentaries and chains spam are avoided, this is difficult to do manually when it comes to accounts with many followers and a large volume of comments.

On the other hand, we must not forget that Instagram leaves out other users, including those with a large number of followers who are facing the same way spam and offensive comments of the always omnipresent trolls, but for the moment this option will only be available for business accounts verified.

Other updates
