A few months back, Instagram revealed the upcoming feature that will help the company to combat fake news. Instagram pinned Comments Feature, which was being tested in May, is finally coming to our devices. This feature allows users to pin three comments to the top of the post. In this way, an author can easily control the thread of comments while highlighting only positive comments, and while hurtful and abusive comments will automatically go down.
Instagram pinned comments feature is rolling out to everyone now
The company is automatically deleting a lot of comments that spread misinformation, hatred, and hoaxes. But this Pin Comment Feature will make it easier for the company to build a positive image while helping people to stay positive. To Pin, a comment user needs to swipe left to see the options: reporting, deleting, and replying. By the end of these options, there will be a pushpin icon as well.
Today we’re rolling out pinned comments everywhere. 📌
