As Instagram becomes more popular every day, issues with spam profiles & spam comments are also increasing.
The other day, my friend who runs a very popular smartphone gadgets brand (called Screenguards) complained about increasing spam comments on his profile.
He mentioned, “Initially it was easy to tackle the spam comments, but as my brand is growing, the number of spam comments are also increasing.”
He is not alone. Many fashion bloggers & Instagram influencers are facing this exact problem.
So today’s question is:
- How do you automatically prevent spam comments on Instagram?
I thought I would be able to find many solutions, but to my surprise, there are only a handful of solutions which automatically tackle spam comments on Instagram.
Meet Smart Moderation: The new favorite tool of Instagrammers
Smart Moderation is a web app which uses the Artificial Intelligence technology to combat spam comments automatically on Instagram (& supports Facebook pages as well).
This tool is easy to use & getting started hardly takes two minutes.
You can configure Smart Moderation to automatically remove inappropriate comments like bad words, ads, spam, and trolls.
You can also configure it for manual actions.
As soon as you connect your Instagram profile or Facebook page, the AI technology starts working. In the above screenshot, I haven’t enabled the “Auto-Hide” feature & you can see how “smartly” it has highlighted the ad comment as inappropriate.
From here you have three options:
- Hide the comment (Only for Facebook page)
- Delete the comment (For Instagram & FB Page)
- Block the user (For Instagram & FB Page)
If you are getting a lot of spam comments on Instagram & Facebook, you can enable the auto-hide feature.
One more cool thing about Smart Moderation is you can reply to comments directly from the dashboard.
(The reply feature supports both Facebook & Instagram.)
I understand that using a new social media tool is a pain, especially when we are already using so many. However in the case of this tool, you should make an exception because it keeps your profile(s) clean.
Undoubtedly, a profile with un-moderated spam comments discourages the genuine users to interact with the profile. Since Smart Moderation is more like a set it & forget it kind of network, it’s a must use tool for every user who has an Instagram profile and/or Facebook page.
The pricing is also very reasonable.
The free account lets you manage up to 3 profiles & an Instagram profile of less than 5,000 followers.
For users who have more than 5,000 followers on Instagram, they can use “Plan 2” which supports up to 50,000 followers & costs only $9/month.
When you have to pick a plan that isn’t free, it’s a sign that you’re growing… 🙂
I hope this tool helps you to solve your problem of spam Instagram comments.
