Instagram is adding a blurred screen with a “Sensitive Content” warning on top of posts that “might” violate its content policy, which basically means posts that have been reported as offensive by users, but don’t merit takedowns per the posted Instagram guidelines.
This is an app feature that will add a step for users who aren’t worried about being scandalized by images posted on the network, since you’ll have to tap an acknowledgement in order to view the photo or video. The blurred view will show up both in list and grid display modes, and Instagram says it’ll prevent “surprising or unwanted experiences” in the app. It’s likely that Instagram is trying to find a balance between reducing community complaints and keeping its guidelines relatively open.[wdi_feed id=”1″]
