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

Celebrating International #WomensDay with some of the amazing women in our Instagram New York office. From engineering to design to research to recruiting to product and more, thank you for everything you bring to Instagram!

Today we're launching the ability to post multiple photos and videos in one Instagram feed post! Here's a tour of Instagram HQ, where we moved in last year, including the Blue Bottle Coffee on our first floor. Looking forward to seeing what everyone does with this new format!

Beautiful day in San Francisco today, a warm welcome for my family visiting from Brazil

Introducing Save on Instagram! If you find something in Feed that you want to keep around for later, tap the new Save icon on the bottom right of posts and it'll be privately saved so you can get back to it later. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

From the beginning of Instagram, @kevin and I have been focused on making it a safe community for people to express their authentic selves and grow closer to each other through sharing their experiences throughout the world.

Today we're announcing three improvements to IG with that in mind: you'll soon be able to turn off comments on any post, you can now remove followers who follow your private account, and we're rolling out improvements to our anonymous reporting for self-harm.
Thanks to @runnerkimhall for the photo!

Today we have two big updates to Instagram! We're launching the new IG Direct, now with ephemeral group and 1:1 visual messaging, and we're adding Live broadcasting to IG too. Super excited to hear what you all think—the new Direct is available today, and we're rolling out Live more broadly soon.

iPhone 7 Plus portrait mode, works on dogs too!

Visited @cbsthismorning today to talk about our new Shopping features and the #fromwhereistand2016 election installation we created in NYC near the Flatiron Building. The next guest after me was none other than Stephen Colbert, pictured here demoing his version of Shopping on Instagram 😀
