Instagram Offers “Restrict” Feature to Combat Bullying

Instagram is rolling out a new feature aimed at stopping cyberbullies.

It’s called “restrict”, and it gives users the power to keep certain users’ comments invisible to others.

Comments from restricted users are visible to the commenter and user whose profile the comment was made on, but not to anyone else.

This is intended to help users monitor bullying behavior.

Many experts aren’t fully convinced yet, and are waiting to see how well it works.
