Instagram is taking a stand against cyber-bullying.

Instagram already has the ability to report bullying content, but it is building upon the feature using machine learning.

The initiatives are the latest efforts the coveted social media platform has made to stamp out online bullying.

Instagram has announced its new tool which would help to fight to bully, this includes a new way to identify it and then report bullying.

The company is using Machine Learning (ML) technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions.

Following the departure of Instagram's co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in September, newly appointed VP of product Adam Mosseri wrote in a blog post: "As the new head of Instagram, I'm proud to build on our commitment to making Instagram a kind and safe community for everyone".

The move comes alongside new kindness camera effects on the photo sharing app in a bid to promote more positivity, as the United Kingdom prepares to mark Anti Bullying Week in November and the U.S. carries out its National Bullying Prevention Month throughout October. "This new technology has begun to roll out and will continue to in the coming weeks".

In another move, a filter that enables Instagram users to detect and hide bullying remarks from Instagram feeds or profiles was extended to comments on live videos, according to Mosseri.

Instagram has partnered with Maddie Ziegler, a New York Times bestselling author, dancer and actor to launch a kindness camera effect.

Anyone who follows the teen star will have automatically have access to a special filter that sees hearts appear on their camera in selfie mode camera effect automatically. Users are encouraged to tag a friend when using it. The technology that enables such detection was surveyed a year ago by Wired, which highlighted the company's inner attempts at machine-learning comment filters. Users can also turn off comments on individual Instagram posts and block posts with certain keywords.
