Instagram Tests New Comment 'Limits' to Help Reduce the Impact of Targeted Abuse by Groups

In response to the many influencers using Instagram to promote products who have come across groups of users posting unwanted comments and messages on their profiles, Instagram is rolling out a new option to combat on-platform abuse. This new feature will focus on limiting actions from groups of users as opposed to muting or restricting individual profiles.

Instagram says that it will recommend groups of accounts, based on their activity, that you can choose to limit. This will effectively hide any activity from these users, unless you manually opt to view their content. Instagram added a 'Restrict' option back in 2019, which similarly enabled users to limit comments of several users by hiding them from the view. This new option aims to restrict groups of people rallying to target an individual.
