Popular social media site, Instagram is always seen prioritising its user’s content sensitivity. Whenever any sensitive content appears on the explore feed of an Instagram user, he/she gets a sensitive content warning saying, “This post may contain graphics or violent content.” The Facebook-owned company, Instagram has now introduced another new feature called “Sensitive Content Control” to make sure that users see appropriate content on their explore feed. Instagram users can now select how much sensitive content they want to appear on their explore feed.
You can think of sensitive content as posts that don’t necessarily break our rules, but could potentially be upsetting to some people — such as posts that may be sexually suggestive or violent.Instagram Blog
We recognize that everybody has different preferences for what they want to see in Explore, and this control will give people more choice over what they see.Instagram Blog
The new feature will give Instagram users control over the sensitive content appearing in their explore feed. Users can either select to keep the sensitive content showing the same as they are, or they can change their sensitive setting controls to see a type of content limited or more times.
Users will be able to control the sensitive content appearance by the following procedure:-
- Click on the menu bar situated on the right top corner.
- Go-to Setting.
- Click on Account.
- Select “Sensitive Content Control”
- Select any option according to your preference.
Note: the feature is not yet accessible to all Instagram users. Moreover, according to Facebook, the sensitive content control feature will not be accessible for Instagram users who are under the age of 18 years.
This new “Content Sensitivity Control“ feature is a great update by Instagram, especially when every social media platform is trying to find ways to prioritise its user’s content sensitivity. Instagram already has some features to make the app more convenient for its users. The app features tools to improve user interaction such as “turning off comments” and “restricting people.”
