Instagram will now warn you if you're close to getting banned

Instagram has new rules for removing accounts Instagram will now warn you if you're close to getting banned

The photo-sharing app will also give users a chance to appeal its moderation decisions directly via the alert and they would no longer have to go through its help page.

As an attempt to make Instagram a friendlier place, the company has introduced a new policy regarding account disabling. Thus far, too high of a percentage of violating content would result in an account being permanently deleted, causing the user to lose all of their posts, messages, and followers.

"Under our existing policy, we disable accounts that have a certain percentage of violating content", the post says.

The new changes are created to "quickly detect and remove accounts that repeatedly violate our policies".

Klopp: It's too early for contract talks with Liverpool
ESPN reported last month that Klopp was pondering a sabbatical when his Liverpool contract ends. It still makes it a bit more hard than in other pre-seasons maybe, but that's all.

A policy update means Instagram will notify people when their accounts are on the verge of being banned, according to a company blog post. Before Instagram scraps years of your accumulated cat pictures and brunch shots, you'll receive a notification explaining why a post was removed and what you can do to plead your case. The modifications may help prevent accounts and posts which have been flagged in error from being removed without warning.

Instagram will warn you when your account is in danger of being deleted. To start, appeals will be available for content deleted for violations of our nudity and pornography, bullying and harassment, hate speech, drug sales, and counter-terrorism policies, but we'll be expanding appeals in the coming months.

This isn't the first time in recent weeks that Instagram tried to clean up bad behavior on its platform.

Like its parent company, Facebook, Instagram also has problem moderating nudity and sexuality. In an effort to lessen the social media pressure on its users it is hiding the number of likes on posts emanating from six countries including Australia, Canada, Italy, Brazil, Ireland, and New Zealand.
