Bullying is a big problem for Instagram, one that the head of the company, Adam Mosseri must take oath. Over time, a new feature, says the company is trying to build artificial intelligence, the complex of the position extermination behavior – make users feel harassed – Identity attacks of betrayals. That will likely take years. Meanwhile, the company is the development of options for the users of this scourge is to fight themselves, with the help of machines. Enter Instagram new feature: closets. There are already several options for dealing with rackets on the platform, as the content flagging who sent for review to moderators. But Instagram user research has found that adolescents – a population at high risk – are reluctant to report colleagues or block the bully. “They are often seen as very difficult options,” says Francesco Fogu, a designer who works on welfare. Both can reveal hurt feelings. And to block during a tyrant essentially monitor the contact between two accounts, but also means that a user is no longer monitor what the bully is doing. Limit, which did not report, is more like a one-way mirror. Even if someone, of course, if you are stuck – because they have more users can not find on the platform – will not be clear if they were limited. You will notice that the messages to see you in their food, as they usually do. But you will no longer see if the user is online or read their messages. And behind the scenes that users have more control. Fogu “The goal here,” he says, “It’s down and put them a bit ‘of space between” When it comes to contributions that the user has the option to review comments that the tyrant in one of its photos or videos writing. You can approve the comment, so that everyone can view, delete, so no one can see or leave him forever in a waiting state: Invisible to all but the tyrant who has no indication that everything from the ordinary. The user does not have either read the comment; will show what’s behind Instagram called a “sensitivity” screen that users tap the comment to delete it or to approve. Do nothing, and remains hidden in a waiting state. When it comes to direct messages, limited person will still see the conversation had discussions with the user in their main box. But on the other hand, the user is not notified if the tyrant sends a message and do not see the wire in their main box; threads is limited instead are diverted to the area reserved for applications for posts in which things like spam are typically relegated. When a user searches the news and want to answer, they need to do this on a limited tyrant. Limiting is also to create “friction” developed when it comes to tag and said, “to make it harder for a tyrant to find you and harass” says Fogu. Normally it handles Instagram automatically propose when someone attempts to day, or about someone else. If a bully tries to tag a user that they are limited, but they will need to know the user handle, and give completely. Fogu describes limit “holistic” approach to combat bullying. ensure that users actually know includes, but could be an Instagram obstacle must be overcome. Society must protect other tools to help users themselves meant launched by thugs in the past – as a filter, the comments hides some keywords that a user is – but many remain unaware of the existence of these instruments. To overcome this, engineers and designers the opportunity to experience, can alert users to new tools as they use the application, rather than ferreting away as additional user settings options. When a user after the elimination comment comment seems that another user logs in place, for example, this may be time for a pop-up that tells limit. Mosseri, who sat with the time to talk about bullying in mid-May, said he wants to lead the industry in the fight against this perennial problem. Doing thorough research user, who is hoping to develop a deep understanding is of what appears on social media bullying and create tools that other companies might be adopted. He believes that go into details messy, instead of hitting the equivalent of a hammer, the key. “You have to go deep in the shades when you go come with more sophisticated answers,” he says. “On the issue of bullying, we want to be generative. We want to think of new and interesting ways to solve the problem.” Instagram launches in the coming weeks and plans to limit testing to roll out to all users later this year.
