Instagram is adding a new filter for comments and not for photos this time.

The popular online photo-video-sharing, and social networking service will soon allow user to moderate/ filter comments with certain words that are not appropriate according to them, reports The Washington Post.

According to the report, Instagram is taking online harassment very seriously and now with a new tool, it will let users filter their own comment streams by allowing them to create a filter for certain custom words that are inappropriate for them.

In a way, users will be benefited with more controlling power and thus they can stop unwanted comments from being posted on their photos.

Instagram has slowly begun to offer the new moderation support for accounts with “high volume” comments such as celebrities as of now. Once after a successful testing period, it will also be rolled out to everyone with improvements, added report.

“Our goal is to make Instagram a friendly, fun and, most importantly, safe place for self expression,” Instagram Public Policy Chief, Nicky Jackson Colaco said in a statement to The Washington Post. “We have slowly begun to offer accounts with high volume comment threads the option to moderate their comment experience. As we learn, we look forward to improving the comment experience for our broader community.”
