Moderation of live streams have been available on streaming platforms like YouTube and Twitch.
Instagram is now launching a feature that will allow Creators going live to have a ‘moderator’.
The moderator will have the power to;
- Report comments
- Remove viewers from Live
- Turn off comments for a viewer
Creators can assign a moderator by tapping the three dots in the comment bar during a Live. From there, they can choose a moderator from a list of suggested accounts, or use the search bar to search for a specific account.
This moderation feature is much needed specially to control trolls and unnecessary comments.
