Instagram Rolls Out Comment-Control Tool

(CNN) — Pew Research Center recently reported online abuse is as rampant as ever, with 4 in 10 U.S. adults saying they’ve been harassed online.

Now, Instagram is trying to rein in the trolls.

The Facebook-owned photo-sharing app has introduced a comment-control tool this week.

Instagram users will now have a handful of filtering options for comments.

Comments can also be blocked from specific users.
