Hi all! We have some updates today around keeping Instagram a safe place for everyone. @kevin and I and the rest of the team at Instagram are committed to building a positive community that brings out the best in folks, and fosters kindness: — On March 25 and 26, Instagrammers will come together for Worldwide InstaMeet 15, themed around Kindness Join an InstaMeet near you — or spread kindness by leaving an encouraging comment, giving an inspiring person a like or sharing a message of support with a friend.
— Soon you may notice a screen over sensitive photos and videos when you scroll through your feed or visit a profile. While these posts don’t violate our guidelines, someone in the community has reported them and our review team has confirmed they are sensitive. This change means you are less likely to have surprising or unwanted experiences in the app. If you’d like to see a post that is covered with a screen, simply tap to reveal the photo or video.
—We also have developed a new, easy-to-use site where you can learn about keeping yourself safe on Instagram. Check out instagram-together.com for more information.
Thanks for being part of the Instagram community! Let us know what you think of the updates
