Instagram Announces Plan To Allow Users Shadow Ban Bullies On Their Accounts

Published

Instagram has announced that it’s working to root out bullying on its platform with a new tool that effectively allows users to shadow ban people who are bullying them.

The new feature would make comments from a bully invisible to everyone but themselves, in essence leaving them shouting into a void without realizing that their comments are not being seen by others.

The term “shadow ban” refers to a practice of softly silencing posters that many heavy users of the platform accuse Instagram of engaging in. In essence, a person is removed from the community without being notified. Instagram creators believe that the app does this for perceived infractions against the Terms of Service that don’t necessarily rise to the level of an outright ban, pointing to notable declines in their reach after controversial posts. Instagram denies doing this.

The new feature is much more deliberate, allowing users to corral their bullies away from the rest of their followers. In a blog post explaining the new tool, Instagram said they settled on the one-party-privy exile because of users’ fear that outright blocking their bullies might result in escalation.

“We’ve heard from young people in our community that they’re reluctant to block, unfollow, or report their bully because it could escalate the situation, especially if they interact with their bully in real life,” Instagram head Adam Mosseri said. Some of these actions also make it difficult for a target to keep track of their bully’s behavior.”

In addition, Instagram has unveiled an automated feature that would encourage people to stop and think before posting hurtful comments. Comments that are flagged by the app while the user is posting them will cause a pop-up that encourages them to “keep Instagram a supportive place.”

Instagram says that tests of this feature showed that moment of self-reflection to be effective. “From early tests of this feature, we have found that it encourages some people to undo their comment and share something less hurtful once they have had a chance to reflect,” Mosseri said.

Study Says Women Who Date Younger Men Have More Satisfying Relationships

Published

on

According to a study conducted by sex psychologist, Dr Justin Lehmiller, women who date younger men have more satisfying relationships.

Dr Lehmiller surveyed 200 heterosexual women in relationships about their relationships, including the age of their partners, and how satisfied they were.

The results revealed that women who were more than 10 years older than their partners were the most satisfied with, and committed to, their relationships than both women who were younger than their partners, and women whose partners were close in age.

Dr Lehmiller explained: “Why were the older women happier with their relationships? I can’t say with certainty based on my data, but it may be because when the woman is older, it might shift the power dynamic toward greater equality.

“We know from a lot of research that greater equality in a relationship tends to make couples happier, so perhaps it’s the case that this arrangement is just more equitable.”

Dr Lehmiller also suggests that relationships in which the woman is older than the man may work as they put the woman in a more dominant position.

He added: “We know that a lot of men are into the idea of submitting to a dominant, powerful woman—and they tend to see older women as having those characteristics.

“So maybe it’s a feeling of empowerment that ultimately underlies older women’s greater feelings of satisfaction—and perhaps that empowerment allows women to get more of what they want, sexually and otherwise.”
