Instagram is trying all the efforts to control online abuse on the app. Last year, in October, Instagram brought new feature “restrict” to reduce online bullying. This feature allows the user to check the comments on their posts and shows the option to delete, approve, or ignore the comments. Instagram also announced “caption warning” feature which warns the user who bullies before they comment anything abusive.
