Instagram lets users control how much sensitive content they see – .

Facebook Inc’s Instagram photo-sharing app will allow users to control how much sensitive content they see under its “Explore” tab, the company said on Tuesday.

The Explore tab displays photos, places, and popular searches based on the user’s interests and allows them to choose from categories like food, art, and travel, among others.

The new feature, called “Sensitive Content Control”, will allow users to decide whether they want to see more or less certain types of sensitive content that don’t necessarily break its rules, such as posts that may be sexually suggestive or violent. , the company said.

“We recognize that everyone has different preferences for what they want to see in Explore, and that control will give people more choice over what they see,” he said in an article.

Instagram, like other social media platforms, has long questioned how to control problematic or harmful content on its platform.

The app has made other changes for users to shape their experience, including adding new tools that allow users to turn off comments or prevent users from interacting with them.

Social media platforms are investing billions of dollars to bring content creators to their platforms while pushing to allow safe content on their platforms as competition in the space intensifies.
