Instagram is constantly giving new features to the users. In such a situation, now you have to tell your age to the company for some feeds. The company will ask you your age by repeatedly sending notifications.
This feature of Instagram will help many users
Instagram will now start showing prompts for users to enter their birthday. If you have an Instagram account and have not shared your birth details with the app, you will be prompted to provide your birthday information through the app. You will be shown prompts every time you open the app. They may be ignored in the beginning, but in the long run, the Facebook-owned app will make it mandatory for users to provide their birthday in order to use Instagram. This will help Instagram determine the age of the users and show age-related content to the users.
Talking about the feature, Pavani Divanji, VP, Instagram Youth Products, said, “We have made it clear that we want to make our platform more secure. Or want to give the youth a better experience. For this, we need information about the date of birth of all the users present on Instagram. In such a situation, now we have started taking information from them about their date of birth.
The company will strictly follow it
He further said that, we had started this a few years back. We have more people’s birthdays. In such a situation, for a more clear picture, we are going to make some changes in it. This change will be for those people who have not yet given their date of birth.
Dewanji further told in his blog that, with the help of whatever information users give us, we will make our platform more secure. Instagram will be here to bring the right content for the right age people. In such a situation, whenever you open the Insta app, you will be asked to give many information. This notification will happen again and again for those people who have kept their age hidden.
Apart from this, if the warning feed appears in your feed, then the company will first ask you for your age. You will be able to see that post only after telling the age. The company wants to make it clear to the users here that if they watch the content according to their age, it is better. Because there are many such accounts who have entered fake age and are running the account.
