Instagram introduces ‘bully’ filter

In an effort to expand its online anti-bullying initiative, Instagram has launched a “bully” filter for its 800 million users.

The filter will be used to weed out comments meant to harass or bully users. The filer will help the popular social media site review accounts that have a large number of comments filtered out and if those accounts violate Instagram’s guidelines, the company said it will take action, including banning an abusive user.

The filter will also hide comments attacking a person’s appearance or character.
