SAFETY + SUPPORT + SELF EXPRESSION – Is Helping Instagram To Do Its Job Better. #Oversight

View this post on Instagram

We stand in solidarity with the Black community. But that’s not enough. Words are not enough. That’s why we’re committed to looking at the ways our policies, tools, and processes impact Black people and other underrepresented groups on Instagram. Addressing the feedback we get has always been an integral part of how we work, and has helped us build a better Instagram for everyone. We’re going to focus on four areas: * Harassment * Account verification * Content distribution * Algorithmic bias It’s not enough to simply celebrate or amplify Black voices on Instagram. We need to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect them as well, and doing so requires we address the specific ways they’re impacted. Our focus will start with Black community, but we’re also going to look at how we can better serve other underrepresented groups. Instagram should be a place where everyone feels safe, supported, and free to express themselves, and I’m hoping this will get us closer to that. Link in bio for more.

Moral Of The Story (PimpHop Oversight Committee)

What we are @ Liberty to share with you now as of current press time is simply that even the head of Instagram actually shares potential solutions and strategies for an optimal functioning Instagram, from an actual dot com, as opposed to on the actual app popularly known as The Gram, and with that said, sometimes the best way to actually receive something that is needed, including but not limited to help, is to actually be the giver of it.

An “overseers oversight” perspective to consider.
