Instagram are testing a new update that allows Celebrities, Brands and Public figures to disable comments on their photos.

Instagram is also allowing public figures to block comments with certain keywords, as we’ve seen Christine Teigen do:

This is a good move by Instagram to make the community a little more friendly, but the question is – will Facebook roll out a similar feature to totally disable all comments?
