What should you do when you see a post violating the Instagram Community Guidelines?
If you see a post that shouldn’t be on Instagram, report the post’s country. Instagram works around the clock to review and delete any posts that violate Community Guidelines .
The way to report it is quite easy. You can click on the “…” icon in the top right corner of someone’s post or profile. You can also report inappropriate comments by shifting the comment to the left.
What if you find a lot of negative or inappropriate content to post on Storie, Live and IGTV? The way to report it is also very easy. You only need to click on the “…” icon at the bottom of the screen.
Not only reporting posts, you can also report incoming messages sent by someone via Direct. The method is also fairly easy, just press and hold the message for a few seconds and select the “Report” option.
All you need to know, reports on Instagram are anonymous. That way, the person you report will not know that someone is reporting their post. Next, the Instagram team will immediately review every photo, video, comment or message that has been reported.
If the content reported is proven to violate the Instagram Community Guidelines, Instagram promises to delete it immediately. What do you think? Yes! In the end, you can be more comfortable using Instagram to chat with many users.
What should I do if you experience intimidation on Instagram?
Instagram does not allow abuse and harassment content. For this reason, Instagram has a feature that can protect users from unpleasant experiences. If the user does not want to interact with a particular account, you can immediately block the account.
When the account is blocked, they will not get a notification and blocking users can also block it at any time. In addition, you can also control comments in posts and can arrange for others to leave comments in the post.
This filter is activated by default for the global community and can be deactivated in the Comment Control center inside the Instagram application. Instagram users can also increase the ability of this filter by using manual filters.
And finally, you or Instagram users can also choose who can comment on your posts or even block comments from certain people. Yes! It’s easy right? That way, you can avoid unpleasant intimidation.
