Today, we’re announcing new tools and programs to keep Instagram a safe and positive place for self-expression. Since the beginning, we’ve tried to make Instagram a welcoming place for everyone. Our community has grown to 800 million, with 500 million using it every day. It’s more important than ever to strengthen our commitment to safety and kindness.
Over time, we’ve launched a number of tools to help you manage the comments experience, and today we’re introducing more. Starting today, if your account is public, you’ll see a new way to choose who can comment on your posts — from everyone to just groups of people, like people you follow or your followers. Also, whether your account is public or private, you’ll be able to block other accounts from commenting on your posts. In June, we launched a filter to block certain offensive comments in English, today we are expanding this filter to Arabic, French, German and Portuguese. The filter will improve over time, enabling the community’s experience of sharing to improve as well.
We’re continuing to provide mental health resources to you when you need them most. If you see someone going through a difficult time or in need of support during a live broadcast, you can report it anonymously. The person will see a message offering help with options to talk to a helpline, reach out to a friend or get other tips and support. We have teams working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, around the world to respond.
We feel as strongly about creating a safe and welcoming environment today as we did when our community was just getting started. To learn more about these tools and others, visit Instagram-Together.com. Thank you for being on this journey with us, and for taking care of each other.
Kevin Systrom
Co-Founder & CEO

Pierre Sturny (@pierresturnyunicyclist) is fresh out of university with an engineering degree, a new job and an unexpected side-hustle — the unicycle. Since picking up the hobby from his sister in 2007, Pierre has ridden his way across the globe on one wheel and a steel frame. He’s performed his extreme tricks and stunts from the streets of his native Blonay, Switzerland, to some of Europe’s most iconic urban centers, and all the way to the Latin American Unicycle Championship in Mexico City. “I don’t think a lot of people know about urban riding — many think unicycling is only for the circus,” says the 22-year-old. When it comes to building new tricks, Pierre says he doesn’t really have a process: “It’s really hard to create new tricks, so it’s really important to just rely on my imagination.

Jayde Fish’s (@mrsjaydefish) artistic road from admirer to muse is a Cinderella story. “I had been working on my tarot [card] series, which was inspired by Gucci’s (@gucci) new designs, when creative director Alessandro Michele (@lallo25) found me on Instagram,” says Jayde, a freelance illustrator and designer who lives in San Francisco. “I had been hashtagging #AlessandroMichele, respectfully, as my source of inspiration, and it just so happened that he was paying attention.” A few seasons back, her illustrations were incorporated into designs that hit the runway, and she continues to collaborate with Gucci today.
Jayde’s passion for tarot, a deck of divination playing cards originating in 15th-century Europe, carries through her work. “I feel that the tarot is a beautiful way to think inwards about who you are and who you want to be. Each character has a deep connection with nature, the universe and the spiritual world, and I feel there’s something very romantic about that.”

“The greatest artists, the most eternal artists, the ones that really have longevity, are the ones that were dedicated and devoted to their work and gave parts of themselves,” says Geoffrey Berliner, executive director of the nonprofit Penumbra Foundation (@penumbrafoundation). “Great art stems from great tension and great investigation and great suffrage and great living.” The New York City organization is on a mission to bring together the art and science of photography through programs and workshops for aspiring and veteran photographers, alike.
In the digital age of point, click, delete, repeat, he believes it’s more important than ever to preserve and explore archaic formats like tintype, one of the earliest (and most complicated) photo processes made popular in the 1860s, as a means to develop voice and creative literacy in the next generation’s great artists. Great art, Geoffrey believes, starts with story: “When you teach a kid comprehensive storytelling, that one kid can go forth and create work that can make a huge impact in the world.”
Watch our Instagram story to see Geoffrey and other artists in Brooklyn at Photoville, a pop-up village of shipping containers featuring photo exhibitions from all over the world.

Enon Avital (@e_known) reached for a bottle of honey, not an inkwell, when he wrote a message of good wishes for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. “At the beginning, I was doing traditional typography — just ink on paper, pencil on paper. Nothing like I’m doing now,” says the New Jersey-based designer and web developer. But eventually Enon looked to more unconventional materials — everything from kiwi to pencil shavings — and turned them into Hebrew typography. “I like the pieces I can eat at the end. That’s always fun,” he says.
Rosh Hashana begins this week and focuses on leaving the old behind and embracing the new. “We drop all negativity,” says Enon. “When the community as a whole asks for forgiveness and resets, we are all refreshed. That is what Rosh Hashana is all about.”

Photo illustrations from (in order of appearance) @babbym for @fashion_east, @halpernstudio, @susiebubble and @richardquinn1
Preppy uniforms, band Ts, combat trousers, Japanese prints — you name it, Susie Lau (@susiebubble) has worn it. “What phase haven’t I gone through?” says the London born-and-raised fashion blogger. “My interest in fashion really started when I was growing up in Camden, seeing how people expressed themselves through clothing,” she says. “I approached it in a really geeky way, reading up about costume and fashion history in the library and buying magazines, cutting things out to make inspiration collages. It was a form of escape.”
When she began her blog, Style Bubble, in 2006, Susie’s only intention was to keep it as her own personal hobby. “When I first started, it very much felt like I was an interloper, especially in fashion, which has always been so guarded and exclusive as an industry,” she says. But as the age of social media dawned, Susie’s blog remained at the forefront of the fashion world. “A decade on, fashion blogging has become an industry in itself,” says Susie. “It’s been good to witness that change gradually, and to know what my own niche is — which is namely discovering young talent.”
Watch our Instagram story now to join Susie behind the scenes — and in the front row — of London Fashion Week.

Fast-forward to today, and the young star of “Black-ish” is still honing her performance chops as she makes her second appearance at the Emmy Awards. “It’s a busy time on the carpet, but that’s overshadowed by seeing friends!” says Yara. “I’m excited to celebrate our TV community. We put in a lot of hours and dedicate a lot of time to create programming, so it’s fun to sit with everyone and just take a moment to smile.”

When “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” host Stephen Colbert (@colbertlateshow) was younger, comedy was his great love. “I had comedy albums that I would play over and over, like George Carlin’s ‘Class Clown’ and Steve Martin’s ‘A Wild and Crazy Guy,’” says Stephen. “I heard those guys and I was hooked. I wanted to be a part of it.” Long before he went into comedy professionally, Stephen had a loyal audience of one: his mother. “She was a great guide for my artistic interests and was the ultimate person to make laugh,” he says.
Stephen’s transition to “The Late Show” two years ago also changed his comedic path. “I’ve allowed myself to become sort of a pure performer now,” he says. “Coming out of ‘The Colbert Report,’ I wanted to go out there and do jokes for people. I wanted to be interested in my guests. That’s the only way I could reveal myself, to be myself for the audience.”
Tune in to the #Emmys this evening to see Stephen host the event — and share a joke or two.

What began as an expression of personal identity has transformed into a colorful business pursuit for Patty Delgado, founder of Hija de tu Madre (@hijadetumadreshop), an online apparel store. Back when she traveled a lot, Patty, who lives in Los Angeles, came across a sequin design of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City and put it on her denim jacket. “I felt like this was something that could really be picked up by a lot of other people who identify, like myself, as Chicana, Mexican-American and a child of Latino immigrants,” she says.
But the designs for Hija de tu Madre are about more than fashion for Patty; they’re about creating community through inclusivity. “It’s something that I really value — being inclusive of different sizes, of different kinds of Latinos, because they’re not a monolith,” says Patty. “There are Afro-Latinos. There are queer Latinos. There are undocumented Latinos. Being inclusive is something that’s allowed me to be so successful because I’m creating a safe space that celebrates the diversity within my Latino community.”
This month, we’ll be sharing the stories of Hispanic-American community members in celebration of #HispanicHeritageMonth, which runs through October 15 in the US.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmadewithlove
You won’t find idle hands here. This weekend, the goal is to create photos and videos that highlight a passion or hobby you put your time and heart into, like this handmade floral hoop art by Olga Prinku (@olgaprinku). Here are a few tips to get you started:
Show us your creative process, from the very beginning to the finished product. What steps take you from idea to object?
Whether you create for a living or for fun, every artist has his or her preferred space to work. Give us a tour of the place where you create — your kitchen table, your studio or a local crafting workspace.
Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes — from communing with nature to experiencing the work of other artists. Where do you find yours?
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmadewithlove hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Despite the endless spread of delectable dishes that Indonesian food photographer and blogger Prawnche Ngaditowo (@foodventurer_) enjoys, it’s the people that matter most when it comes to dining. “Without the company of friends, family and loved ones, the meal is just a meal,” says Prawnche. “After all, happiness should be shared, right?”
Prawnche’s culinary interest began at a young age in his family’s kitchen, tasting his mother’s Chinese and Indonesian recipes. “As the youngest son, somehow I got to be the only one on the judging panel,” says Prawnche, now 29. After moving to Jakarta in 2011, Prawnche started his blog, “Foodventurer,” in order to combine his passions for writing, photography and food. One day, he even hopes to open his own restaurant: “Like a safe haven, where people could feel at home.” 🍲
Feast your eyes on our Instagram story now to join Prawnche on a tour of Indonesia’s tastiest cuisines.

During New York Fashion Week, some creative directors barely have enough time to finish just one collection. But if you’re Laura Kim (@tokibunbun) and Fernando Garcia (@fernandogarciam1205), co-creative directors of Monse (@monsemaison) and Oscar de la Renta (@oscardelarenta), you have two entire collections to perfect. “There are days when I wish my week was 10 days and not seven,” says Laura, “but most of the time I enjoy doing such a different collection for each house. It helps me not get bored or overdevelop.”
Laura and Fernando first met at Oscar de la Renta, and quickly discovered their similar drive and passion for work. “It was a perfect match from day 1,” says Fernando. Despite the amount of work and responsibility, the pair’s friendship and love for what they do gets them through the long working days and nights. “It’s fun. You get to be like an actor, playing two different characters every day,” says Fernando. “It’s very satisfying to allow your mind to have outlets like these. Nothing is ever held back.”
Watch our Instagram story now for a behind-the-scenes look at New York Fashion Week with Laura and Fernando. 👠

Lighting, timing, location — all of these were obstacles that Brazilian photographer Luisa Dörr (@luisadorr) faced as she photographed the subjects of Time magazine’s (@time) “Firsts” project, which showcases 46 women who broke a major barrier in their field. “At first, it was difficult,” says Luisa, who shot all of her portraits — and 12 different “Firsts” Time covers — on a phone. “The subjects couldn’t understand that the same phone they carry in their pocket is able to make a professional photograph. But the phone allowed me to move fast — it was just me and the subjects.”
Growing up in southern Brazil, Luisa studied photography in school and became a full-time freelancer in 2015; not long after, the Time editors discovered her work and brought her on as the lead photographer for “Firsts.” “More than just women, I saw amazing human beings and professionals,” says Luisa, who photographed women ranging from Oprah Winfrey to Hillary Clinton. “All of them went through a lot of struggles. This positive fighting energy is what has inspired me the most.”

Ruben Barraza (@majorwavez) was working in retail and could never escape one burning question that customers kept asking him: “Where are your shoes from?” The answer? He makes them himself. Eventually, sales from his bold and colorful shoe designs grew more profitable than his full-time job, so Ruben decided to formally treat it like the business it had become. “From working retail, I knew that roses were going to trend a long time ago. And after that, I knew flames were going to trend. I’ve kind of become my own buyer,” says Ruben, who lives in San Jose, California.
Donning the samples that he makes, Ruben can go almost two weeks without wearing the same pair of custom kicks twice. He’s fulfilled a few celebrity orders, and learned the unique artistic challenges of having a shoe be your canvas. “Maybe butterflies look really good on a size 9 shoe. But then I get an order from a person who wants it for their kid who’s a 3 1/2, and the butterflies look too big on that,” explains Ruben. “And picking colors is tough, too. You can’t just throw any colors together.”
Check out our Instagram story to see how Ruben makes his custom kicks. 👟

Ramps, ollies and kickflips, decks plastered with branded stickers — it may look an awful lot like skateboarding in miniature, but to aficionados like 17-year-old Cass Hirst (@cass.fb), fingerboarding is its very own sport. “People are always like, ‘Oh, it’s a tiny skateboard,’ but it’s not just playing around with toys,” says the London native. “When I’ve done nine hours of fingerboarding straight, I can barely stand up.”
As a child, Cass fell in love with skateboarding, so when he stumbled upon fingerboarding videos in 2008, he became instantly obsessed. Now Cass is so skilled, he has brand sponsorships and can perform tricks while blindfolded. “When I started, it was the furthest thing from cool,” he says. “Because I’ve made something out of it, people have a bit more respect for it. They don’t try to find humor in it anymore. They’re just like, ‘That’s cool.’”
Watch our Instagram story to see some of Cass’ fingerboarding tricks. ✌️

Stop-motion videos, retro aesthetics and a love for plants — these are a few of 21-year-old Jacob Fregoso’s (@jacobfrerod) favorite things. After participating in a Worldwide InstaMeet a few years ago, Jacob changed the way he participated in the community; so much so that this year for Worldwide InstaMeet 16, Jacob is hosting his own. “Come hang out with Instagrammers, share and create moments and meet people with the same passions as you!” he says. In the spirit of #KindComments, Jacob is encouraging everyone to send messages of positivity, especially to those who inspire you or support you in your daily life — through Instagram, or in person.
To celebrate #WWIM16💌’s theme of #KindComments, join Jacob on September 9 in Parque América, Polanco, for his Mexico City InstaMeet.
Watch our Instagram story to see some of Jacob’s signature stop-motion videos — all celebrating WWIM16💌. 🌻
