Instagram has started rolling out a new set of tools to help people feel safe when sharing photos and videos - and two of them are likely to be very popular.
The first is the ability to turn off commenting for individual posts, so if you're getting a lot of negative feedback on a photo or video, you can shut them down instantly.
"Comments are where the majority of conversation happens on instagram. While comments are largely positive, they're not always kind or welcome," said Kevin Systrom, co-founder and CEO of Instagram in a blog post.
"Sometimes there may be moments when you want to let your post stand on its own. Previously this was only available for a small number of accounts. In a few weeks, it will be available for everyone."
To turn off comments before you post, make sure you are running the latest version of Instagram on your iOS or Android device, then tap "Advanced Settings" and then select "Turn Off Commenting".
You can tap the "…" menu any time after posting to turn commenting back on.
The second big update is the ability to "like" individual comments on posts - in much the same way you can like comments on Facebook - by tapping the heart icon.
"Liking lets you show support and encourages positivity throughout the community," said Systrom.
The news was well received by Instagram users, who took to Twitter to share the good news:
