Instagram adds new tools that should be able to detect self-harm and suicide content and take it down immediately

Nov 11 2020 Share

The new update aims to properly identify harmful content and make it less apparent in the app. If the tools are sufficiently confident, the posts can be deleted entirely without actually looking at them by a human being, Instagram said.

This tool is also used on Facebook and Instagram outside the EU, where it requires additional layers that also see posts sent to human reviewers, who can then take more action, such as linking the poster to local aid groups and, in the most extreme situations, calling emergency services.

Netflix has confirmed that its Emily in Paris romcom series in will be back for a second season. Created by Darren Star (Sex and City, Younger) during the first season of the series, Lily Collins starred as Emily, a young marketing executive was sent to the French capital to work at a luxury business, only to experience a minor issue or two along the way. 

Netflix revealed the news in a fictitious memo sent from Emily’s place of work, Savoir.

“Despite her overconfident manner and lack of prior experience in luxury goods marketing, she has nonetheless managed to charm some of our hard-to-impress clients during her short time at Savoir,” reads the note. “Call it Bonne chance, or American ingenuity —I’m leaning towards the former— her results are impressive. We love having Emily in Paris! But please don’t let her know that.”
