Instagram Introduces Enhanced Comment Controls

Instagram Introduces Enhanced Comment Controls

Tuesday morning December 6th, Instagram announced in a blog post that in coming weeks you will be able to exercise a lot more control over the comment sections on your posts. They previously introduced the ability to filter comments based on keywords, but now you will be able to turn off comments entirely on any post. You will also be able to like comments by tapping the heart icon next to individual comments. 


Our favorite addition from this round of changes is the “reply” button on each comment. While this looks like Facebook’s comment reply functions which begin sub-threads on individual comments, it actually just autofills the person’s handle in a new comment at the bottom.
