Pinning Positive Posts
This new feature will especially be helpful at times when a user is receiving hate and inappropriate comments. As users can pin the positive comment to the top to counter the negativity.
Pinned Comments As A Reference
Pinned comments can make others do the marketing for your brand. For example, say you publish a post on Instagram to promote your upcoming online seminar. An attendee may leave a comment on your post showing how they enjoyed your event last week. Then you can pin that comment to the top. Anyone who goes through your post will see the pinned comment review of your seminar and may convince them to sign up for the next.
Eliminating Negative Comments
Instagram is trying out to delete significant numbers of negative comments in addition to showcasing positive comments.
The new feature will help keep a positive environment on users’ accounts, particularly if they have a larger audience.
Here’s How To Enable The Feature On iOS :
- Click on the comment and further click on the dotted icon located in the top right corner.
- Choose Manage Comments and select a maximum of 25 comments to delete all at once.
- Click on More Options to block accounts in numbers.
