Shortly before the inauguration of its CEO Adam Mosseri in Congress, the Instagram development team released new features, aimed at providing a safer place for teens.
First, it launches the “Take a Break” feature, previously available in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. In practice, “Take a Break” is a “pop-up” notification from Instagram, which will encourage users to take a break, after a certain period of time on the platform.
Secondly, from March 2022, parents will take control of their children’s activity on the Instagram platform. Tools will be released with which parents will know how much time their children spend on Instagram and will be able to set time limits. In fact, teens will have the option of notifying their parents if they report an unknown or annoying account.
At the same time, the possibility of mass deletion of photos, videos, comments and likes from posts from the past will be added to Instagram. This feature is expected worldwide on the popular platform next January.
Finally, at the beginning of 2022, the ability of adding teen tags by adult users who do not follow them will be disabled.
Instagram is also currently exploring how to reduce the harmful/sensitive content that teen users are watching on the platform.
