Users are also getting the ability to control who can tag or mention them in a post, comment, caption, or story.

They can choose everyone, people they follow, or no one. This feature is available from the privacy settings section of Instagram‘s Settings menu.

Additionally, it’s testing the ability to pin comments to the top of a post.

People can pin multiple comments, similarly to how YouTube allows comments to be pinned to the top of the comments section below videos. This allows creators to highlight positive conversations.

All of these features are likely most useful for people with large followings who might be targeted for abuse from random users.

Similar to content controls, it would seem that this feature will also be a huge time-saver since users won’t have to go through every comment mention and tags on their post to see if they’re okay with the content or not.

But the company says the tools are also designed to “fight against online bullying,” which could affect anyone, not just influencers with major reach.

Bullying prevention has become a focus for Instagram, and it’s built multiple features to address the problem.

Conclusion

These new features will definitely help Instagram users with large followers to remove the negative comments, also can now highlight the positive comments in a post as well.
