In a blog post from Instagram, the company announced last Monday, December 16, that it started introducing a new feature that informs users that “their captions on a photo or video may be considered offensive” in order to encourage its users “to pause and reconsider their words before posting.”

As part of our long-term commitment to lead the fight against online bullying, we’ve developed and tested AI that can recognize different forms of bullying on Instagram,” Instagram wrote in a blog post. “Results have been promising, and we’ve found that these types of nudges can encourage people to reconsider their words when given a chance.

In an announcement, Instagram also said that its new feature was meant to fight back bullying on the platform.

In addition to limiting the reach of bullying, this warning helps educate people on what we don’t allow on Instagram, and when an account may be at risk of breaking our rules,” Instagram wrote in a blog post. “To start, this feature will be rolling out in select countries, and we’ll begin expanding globally in the coming months.
