The good news for Instagram users: Instagram just unveiled a new feature that lets you like each other’s comments on posts. Plus, it is also improving safety features on the app by allowing you to disable comments on specific post, and remove followers from private accounts without the need to tap on the block button. So, once you are done updating to the latest version of the app, you can definitely perform these tasks.
In order to like a comment, you just need to tap on the small heart icon that shows up next to it, like the way you like a regular Instagram post. Like counts appear below the comments. Unlike Facebook, “liking a comment” won’t influence where it displays on a specific post.
If you want to disable comments on specific posts on Instagram, you will need to tap into the new advanced settings menu and switch off the comments before posting a photo or video.
Previously, Instagram provided particular verified accounts with the ability to do this.
If you are using a private account, you are now able to remove a follower without blocking them. To do this, head to your Followers list, and tap on the 3 dots beside a person’s name to bring up a pop-up. Just tap on Remove. It’s worth noting that if you don’t have a private account, you are not able to use this feature. In order to make your account public, head to your profile, tap on the Cog icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and then flip the switch for Private account to the ON position.
Instagram is beginning to release the new cool features as of Tuesday; however, the Facebook-owned company says it may take a few weeks to show up to all Instagram users.
As far as we can see that Instagram is trying to makes users’ content interaction safer. What do you think about Instagram’s new changes? Share with us in the comments section below.
