CEO Adam Mosseri says everyone should feel safe and supported on Instagram.
Instagram plans to reevaluate its policies in an effort to ensure black voices are heard on the app. In a blog post on Tuesday, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri promised to address inequities in the social media company’s approach to harassment, account verification, content distribution and algorithmic bias.
“The irony that we’re a platform that stands for elevating Black voices, but at the same time Black people are often harassed, afraid of being ‘shadowbanned’, and disagree with many content takedowns, is not lost on me,” wrote Mosseri. “This is a moment when people around the world are rightfully demanding actions over words, and we owe the same to our community.”
