Instagram premieres feature: Disable comments on images

The favorite application to share photographs by users will provide an option that will disable the comments of their images, something that only had access to a small number of accounts so far.

To deactivate the comments, users must select, before publishing the photograph, the option "Disable comments" in "Advanced settings". From the menu of the publication can also be activated at any time, according to the company explained.

Kevin Systrom, confounder and director of the affiliate has stated through a statement that these new features will be available in all countries of the world "in the coming weeks".

"We will add a heart icon to the comments, which you will only have to touch to indicate that you like it ... In this way, you will be able to show your support and contribute to a positive environment within the community," adds Systrom.

In recent months it has been revealed that some celebrities, such as singer Justin Bieber, have decided to leave instagram, pressured by criticisms or offensive comments attached to their photos.

This new update adds to actions previously announced that allow you to filter comments if they contain certain words, to reduce the possibility of offensive comments on the network.
