Instagram have announced via their own Instagram feed that users are now able to Like comments left on their photos or other users photos – simply tap the heart icon next to any comment.
Instagram CEO, Kevin Systrom also announced that soon users will be able to turn off commenting on any of their photos.
This can be done by clicking:
- Advanced Settings
- Turn Off Commenting
This updates are being done to keep the service a safe and positive place for self-expression.
Back in September we saw Instagram introduce a Keyword Filter on comments in an attempt to crack down and reduce abusive or unwanted commenting.
