Instagram Will No Longer Allow Adults to DM Teens Who Do Not Follow Them

Instagram has just announced several new guidelines and rules to help keep the younger generation safe from predators and predatory behavior.

“To protect teens from unwanted contact from adults, we’re introducing a new feature that prevents adults from sending messages to people under 18 who don’t follow them. For example, when an adult tries to message a teen who doesn’t follow them, they receive a notification that DM’ing them isn’t an option,” Instagram revealed. “This feature relies on our work to predict peoples’ ages using machine learning technology, and the age people give us when they sign up. As we move to end-to-end encryption, we’re investing in features that protect privacy and keep people safe without accessing the content of DMs.”

The platform continued, “If an adult is sending a large amount of friend or message requests to people under 18, we’ll use this tool to alert the recipients within their DMs and give them an option to end the conversation, or block, report, or restrict the adult. People will start seeing these in some countries this month, and we hope to have them available everywhere soon.”

They will also begin to “make it more difficult for adults who have been exhibiting potentially suspicious behavior to interact with teens” by not showing teens in the “suggested follow” section.

The site also says they will encourage teens to make their accounts private if they wish.

Instagram Addresses Hiding Likes on Some Users' Posts

Instagram made a big change to their app – and users were not happy about it.

On Tuesday (March 2), many Instagram users realized that the app had started to hide the amount of likes posts on the app had received.

Before, Instagram users would be able to see the actual amount of other users liking their posts, but on Tuesday, Instagram changed the like feature to now it just saying one user’s name and “others” instead of the actual amount of likes.

Back in 2019, Instagram first gave users a heads up that they were going to start a test to hide likes on their app, but never gave an official timeline for this change.

“Testing a Change to How You See Likes,” Instagram said at the time. “We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get. During this test, only you will be able to see the total number of likes on your posts.”

However, Instagram never officially announced that they were getting rid of the likes ahead of Tuesday’s change.

After some backlash from users, Instagram tweeted out a statement addressing the change, saying it was done “unintentionally.”

“We’ve been testing a new experience to hide likes on Feed posts,” Instagram tweeted. “We unintentionally added more people to the test today, which was a bug — we’re fixing this issue and restoring like counts to those people as soon as possible.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Banned From Instagram Over Anti-Vaxx Content

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is the nephew of former U.S. president John F. Kennedy, the son of Robert F. Kennedy, and married to actress Cheryl Hines, has been banned from Instagram.

“We removed this account for repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines,” a spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, said in a statement to CNN last week. His Facebook account is still active at this time.

If you don’t know, Robert is a major anti-vaccine advocate. So far, three other celebrities are also refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, and we can imagine Robert will be skipping the shot as well.

The Coronavirus vaccines are currently in high demand to help life return to normal and control the spread of the deadly virus. Public health experts and scientists point to the vaccine being safe and effective.
