Instagram has just announced a few new features that has been added to the awesome social chat, that are going to arrive in its apps for Android and iOS “soon”. Now, you’ll be able to turn off comments individually for any of your posts. This update was previously available “for just small number of accounts”, but it will be out for everyone “in a few weeks”.
When you receive the update, just tap Advanced Settings before you post and check the Turn Off Commenting option. You can turn comments back on at any point after you’ve posted by using the “…” menu.
Also coming soon is the ability to like comments. The familiar heart symbol will be used here too, just like for posts. To like a comment, you tap on the heart icon next to it.
People who have private accounts will be able to remove followers without blocking them. What’s more, the removed people will not be notified that this has happened. To use this, just tap the “…” menu next to any person’s name in your followers list and do the deed.
The last thing Instagram unveiled today is an anonymous way to report people who you think might be considering injuring themselves. Once you do this, the friend in question will be connected with organizations that offer help in such situations. Instagram says it has teams working across the world 24/7 in order to review these reports.
