CAIRO, Nov.6 (SEE)- Instagram is trying to launch new version of its popular Stories format for students and make it more attractive. Only students at a particular school would be able to submit and view content posted to Story.
When users connect with fellow students, it adds their university and graduating year to their profile and gives them access to a list of other users who have added the same information to their profile.
The company last month revealed tests of its “school communities” feature, which acts like a directory to search for other users who went to the same university as you.
The firm recently ramped up its tools to prevent bullying and launched new machine learning tools that are able to ‘proactively detect bullying in photos and captions.
Instagram would also add in extra protections to make sure School Stories don’t become a magnet for cyberbullies.
Details of the feature were discovered by ”Jane Manchun Wong” a frequent tipster and a computer science student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
