Instagram to introduce ’Caption Warning’ to combat cyberbullying

Instagram said that it would be using AI (Artificial Intelligence) to see if captions resemble others that have been reported as bullying. The app will prompt you to think more carefully about the caption. This measure is intended to reduce cyberbullying and online harassment.

First of all, I am the parent. If I think social media bullying is a problem for my child (either for doing the bullying, or being bullied) I reserve the right to take away their mobile devices, limit time spent online, and to appropropriate their accounts passwords and record the interactions of their so called "friends" and follwers on my child's pages. I will be strict, mean, and intrusive, until the kiddos prove that I either can't control their online access or they know how to handle problematic people on social media, and to not be monsters. Second, what these flying flap are these social media elites smoking if they think a strongly worded warning will prevent users from posting stuff that's in violation of their policies? It doesn't take much to set up an anonymous account just to tell someone to throw himself in to a wood chipper, then let the account burn.

I'm glad they found such a truck solid solution and surprised no one had tried this before. /s

I'm so old that I can remember when the solution to bullying was a punch in the nose.

Kids shouldn't be on social media to begin with. If you're an adult and you feel like you're getting bullied, grow a pair.
