The New Way Instagram is Detecting Bullying

If you’re on social media, then you know sometimes it can be pretty rough. Actually, you don’t even have to be on social to know that. Social media is a great tool, but unfortunately it can sometimes be used as a way to bully and be rude. People can hide behind their screens and say whatever they want without thinking about how it could hurt someone else.

Obviously, we love social media and what it’s capable of. But seeing how harmful social media can be has always been discouraging. That’s why we’re so excited to see Instagram finding new ways to detect bullying! Read Mashable’s blog post, Instagram Turns to Machine Learning to Detect Bullying on the Platform, about the new tool they’re using to detect and remove harmful comments and content.
