We are so in a time where online bullies and trolls are pretty much! Like could they not be such a**holes and leave us alone!

Well, fear no more fellow socialites, because Instagram has heard your cries, whims and bullying and are now here to save the day. There's a new Instagram tool that will make it the digital playground a more friendly arena. One of the first new tools allow users to filter spam-like comments in nine different languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, French, German, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese).

The second tool allows you the ability to block offensive comments and although Instagram hasn't revealed what those words would be, that is certainly a smart move so that smarty pants people can't find loopholes.

It's certainly going to take a whole tribe to keep the Internet a safer and more enjoyable place to be, but to you Instagram, we tip our hats to you good sir, well played.
