Instagram continues to increase the number of tools that allow users to control the level of experience to adjust it to what they really want to receive in it for their accounts.
In this sense, they have just presented a new tool called “Control of sensitive content”, which basically, and within the content allowed on the platform, allows users to adjust the level of “sensitive content” that they allow for the Explore section of Instagram.
According to the platform:
You can think of sensitive content as posts that do not necessarily violate our rules, but might be annoying to some people, such as posts that may be sexually suggestive or violent.
Users can leave the sensitive content settings as they come by default, under the Limit option, or allow more “sensitive content” through the Allow option, or view less by adjusting the settings to the Limit option further.
Instagram clarifies that for those who are under 18 years of age, in the sensitive content configuration options of their user accounts, they will not find the Allow option, this being the only exception.
This new control tool continues the efforts made in the direction so that users can control their experiences:
We’ve started moving in this direction with tools like the ability to disable comments or Restrict someone from interacting with you on Instagram.
So within the contents allowed by the rules and guidelines of Instagram, users now have a greater possibility of controlling what they see and how they interact on the platform, which surely makes us deduce that we will be seeing new tools that are focused in the same direction.
It will be a matter of time before they arrive to offer a greater range of possibilities, seeking that users can have a sufficient level of personalization of the experience they want to have each time they enter the application.
And is that each person is different and has their own preferences regarding the content they want to see, in addition to other possibilities, so the commitment to customizing what they want and what not will be the maximum on the part of Instagram, joining to its other objective that users participate safely, without being intimidated by bad actors according to the content that they publish in the accounts.
