Meta-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram is trying to tackle the problem of unsavory comments that pop up during Live streams with its latest feature. Now, Live users can assign someone to be a moderator for their broadcasts. Moderators can report comments, switch off comments from a particular user and boot troublesome viewers from the stream, reports Engadget.
Creators can add a moderator by tapping the menu icon on the comment bar. They can search for a specific person or choose a user from a list suggested by Instagram.
Instagram is rolling out the feature to help broadcasters focus on engaging in positive discussions instead of spending time addressing unwanted interactions, the report said.
