Instagram, the photo-sharing app owned by Facebook on Monday launched a keyword moderation tool to allow its users to control the comments posted on their pictures.

The feature allows its users to list words that they consider offensive or inappropriate and then comments with those words would be hidden from the user’s posts.

Abusive comments and online trolling seen on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have been garnering eyeballs as more celebrities deactivate their accounts as a result of the hate they receive online.
