Instagram adds new ‘false information’ reporting option

Instagram has taken further steps to establish its credibility as a platform, as it demands its users to post true information only.

A new addition to the reporting tool will be added by Instagram to reduce & eliminate false information posted by people.

As explained by Instagram:

“From the end of August, people will be able to let us know about content that people believe may be misinformation and help improve our ability to proactively catch misinformation.

In other words, they are expanding their detection options to detect false information, however, instead of removing the post it will only be filtered out from suggested pages such as Explore and hashtag pages.
