Instagram demoting inappropriate content from app | #126365”

The platform helps its users monetize via sponsored posts or through other sources. Instagram stated, "We have begun reducing the spread of posts that are inappropriate but do not go against Instagram's Community Guidelines".

Instagram is taking new steps to limit the reach of content it deems "inappropriate".

However, they didn't clarify their word "inappropriate", but according to the TechCrunch, the word inappropriate defines anything that is "violent, graphic/shocking, sexually suggestive, misinformation and spam content'". The move comes after some changes within Facebook, Instagram's parent company. The main aim of the company is to remove contents that violate the company's policies and in this way, the company will reduce surfacing misleading and inappropriate contents on Instagram and on Messenger.

The company explains that a sexually suggestive post may still appear in the Feed if the user follows that particular account which posts it, however, this post or similar type of content will not appear for the other users in Explore or hashtag pages. "It's not something unique to Facebook but inherent in human nature". It intends to reduce the reach of groups that repeatedly share misinterpreted and wrong information on it. Facebook's post coincided with an excess of "integrity" announcements it made at the Menlo Park headquarters press conference that focused on safeguarding its family of apps. The new policy also aims to further tackle instances of clickbait, harassment, and fake news. "We've started to use machine learning to determine if the actual media posted is eligible to be recommended to our community", Instagram's product lead for Discovery, Will Ruben, said. It is said to add "Forwarding Info", and "Frequently Forwarded" features to its app soon.

The News Feed Context Button will soon be expanded to images and Facebook is introducing a new Community Standards section that'll allow users to track its monthly updates. Also, you might not find them while surfing through a hashtag.
