Instagram has now launched a new feature for its users that allows them to deal with the unsavoury comments during live stream.
The meta-owned platform users can now assign moderators for live streams, which will able to report comments, remove viewers from the stream and turn off comments for a specific viewer as well.
The creators can select a moderator during a ‘live’ by tapping the three dots in the comment bar and then choose the moderator from a suggested list of accounts or manually search for a specific account.
Instagram is a late entrant in rolling out the moderator feature for its streamers, given that it has been around since 2016.
Moderation has become quite a requirement in other live streaming platforms like YouTube and Instagram’s sister company Facebook, where many a times comments gets unpleasant.
Facebook enables users to have moderators to their live streams and had even added features to eliminate trolls.
Meta has since long faced several situations where posts and comments had gruesome overall implications and impacts.
The social media giant has struggled monitoring extreme content on Facebook during the pandemic.
To attract more creators to Live, Instagram in November last had launched its badges feature, which offers the ability to monetize streams.
The new addition to this photo sharing platform may make the streaming experience enhanced.
