Users of social media giant- Instagram have expressed concern with the platform’s new sensitive content filter as the feature is blocking their posts.
The sensitivity filter, which was introduced on Tuesday by Instagram, allows people to set limits around how much potentially sensitive content they might see on their ‘Explore’ page.
The feature is supposed to filter out things like self-harm content, and it’s turned on by default. But according to Instagram- creators shouldn’t worry!
The app already limited the amount of sensitive content people see on their ‘Explore’ page, and “the default setting retains that filtering”.
With the options introduced on Tuesday, users can either further limit sensitive content or allow more of it to surface.
The feature covers sensitive content like nudity, sexually explicit content, tobacco-related content, or content related to pharmaceutical drugs, both are considered sensitive content.
