Have you ever received a negative comment on Instagram that changed the entire mood of the thread? Well, I have a good news for you. Starting today, you have the option to pin top comments on your posts.
Positive vibes only.
Photo-sharing social media platform Instagram has rolled out Pinned Comments and is now live globally. With this feature, any user can pin up to three comments they would like to see on top. To do this, the author will have to swipe left on the comment and tap the push pin icon. The app will also alert you if you’ve reached the limit of comments you can pin, and unpin your least favorite ones.
The goal of this feature is to prevent, if not eliminate, hateful comments from appearing on a thread. Instagram has been continuously working on these features using AI to block offensive comments. It can also warn users from posting content with potential harmful captions.
