Now that Instagram Live creators can appoint moderators to their streams, the feature has finally arrived. In the future, moderators will be able to report comments, remove viewers from the stream, and disable comments for a specific viewer, among other things.
The three dots in the comment section of a Live video, according to Instagram, allow users to designate a moderator. A list of suggested moderators is provided, or users may type in a specific username to find a specific moderator.
Instagram has only just begun to support moderators for its streams, despite the fact that Live has been around since 2016. When it comes to other live streaming platforms, such as Twitch and YouTube, moderation has become a necessity. When it comes to removing trolls from your Instagram feed, Facebook also has a moderation tool in place, just like Instagram just launched.
With the introduction of chat moderators, Instagram is hoping to increase the number of creators using Live by offering them a way to monetize their streams.
