    Donald Trump Jr. is furious with Instagram because he says the social media platform issued a warning to users searching his name. After noticing a massive loss of followers in the past few weeks, President Trump’s oldest son claimed to have discovered a warning message issued to Instagram users and expressed his outrage in a post to the platform Friday night. He tagged Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, which owns Instagram. “REALLY?!?! Are you fricken kidding me? @zuck this is insane,” he wrote. “I get that my 3 year old Chloe can be pretty aggressive as are a few...

    Instagram unveiled an update on its platform that will filter out any comments viewed as “bullying” starting Tuesday. The filter is an expansion of Instagram’s update in 2017, which gives users the option to automatically filter out any “offensive” comments. The popular social media site, with its 800 million users, will use a machine-learning algorithm to detect harassers that’s called DeepText and was developed by Instagram’s owner, Facebook, The New York Times reports.

    Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christoper Wylie, appearing before a committee of British MPs on Tuesday, said that Facebook has the ability to spy on users in their homes and offices. The British parliament is investigating Cambridge Analytica's involvement in the Brexit election. MP Damian Collins, who chaired the committee, asked Wyle whether Facebook has the ability to listen to what people are talking about in order to better target them with ads. "There's been various speculation about the fact that Facebook can, through the Facebook app on your smartphone, listen in to what people are talking about and discussing and using...

    A Wisconsin wife has opened up about how Internet trolls tried to drag her down for being married to 'Mr Six-Pack'. Wedding photographer Jenna Kutcher, who describes herself as 'curvy', has posted several photos on Instagram with her husband, Drew. She said she's received many direct messages before shaming her body but that one in particular was someone saying 'they couldn't believe [she] had managed to land a guy as good looking' as Drew. Jenna told Yahoo Lifestyle that the message shook her confidence and brought up past insecurities, but she decided to combat them instead of letting them fester.

    Even millennials are getting sick of Instagram. More than half of users between the ages of 18 and 24 revealed they are “seeking relief from social media,” according to a survey.

Forty-one percent of respondents said they waste too much time on social media, and 35 percent agreed that people their age are too distracted by their online lives. The most popular apps to quit permanently are Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as the dating app Tinder. Snapchat, on the other...

    When Lissette Calveiro moved to New York from Miami in 2013, for an internship, she felt like she was living the “Sex and the City” dream. The now-26-year-old was having brunch with friends and buying new outfits online — and documenting it all on her Instagram account. “I wanted to tell my story about this young millennial living in New York,” Calveiro, who has more than 12,000 followers on Instagram, told The Post. “I was shopping . . . for clothes to take ‘the perfect ’gram.’ ”

    Thanks, Obama. The former president appeared at a sports analytics conference hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Friday. But if you were not an attendee at the event, don’t expect to hear much about what Barack Obama shared. Officials managing the 12th annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center put strict rules in place that extended beyond barring the media from divulging Obama’s insights. An e-mail sent to those heading to the venue for the “conversation with Obama” read like a line from the movie “Fight Club”: The first rule of seeing the...

    Facebook-owned Instagram just deleted one of the two Instagram accounts of Florida high school shooter Nicolas Cruz. One of Cruz’s accounts seemed to display a fascination with ISIS terrorists and Islamic extremism; the other one showcased Cruz wearing a MAGA hat and contained imagery such as him killing toads. If you guessed that Instagram removed the ISIS one, you got it right. Why would they remove that one but keep the MAGA hat one up? To control the narrative as this story develops. Unfortunately for them, Gateway Pundit has screenshot the entirety of both accounts.

    YouTube and Instagram face ban in Russia unless they remove videos of oligarch Oleg Deripaska and deputy prime minister ‘relaxing on a yacht with an escort and discussing 'bad relations with America' Billionaire Oleg Deripaska and Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko were reportedly filmed by an escort on Deripaska's private yacht in 2016, which the Russian opposition, led by Alexei Navalny, claim is evidence of corruption and bribery. In one video, the two men can be heard referring to 'bad relations with America' and 'Nuland', referring to Victoria Nuland, the then Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs...

    Trump supporters share more fake news on social media than any other political group, according to a new study from Oxford University. Researchers studied more than 13,000 Twitter users and 47,000 Facebook pages in the days leading up to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address to determine which social media users spread the most “junk” news. They discovered that Trump supporters on Twitter shared more unreliable news than all other groups combined. On Facebook, extreme conservatives share more junk news than all other audiences put together. The researchers defined “junk news” as “misleading, deceptive or incorrect information purporting...

Bello, who debuted on the long-running CBS procedural last week as Special Agent Jack Sloane, shared a photo to Instagram on Monday of herself with boyfriend Elijah Allan-Blitz.

Her message references director of NCIS Leon Vance, played by actor Rocky Carroll. While a number of fans...

As many as 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured when warped killer Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on a music concert from the window of his hotel room...

    A bug that exposed users’ contact information affected a far greater number of accounts than Instagram originally said. The bug, which appears to have been responsible for Selena Gomez’s account being hacked this week, allowed hackers to scrape email addresses and contact information for millions of accounts, Instagram said today. (It has since been fixed.) While the company first said the hack was limited to holders of verified accounts, it said today that non-verified users had been affected as well. Hours after the hack was disclosed, hackers established a searchable database named Doxagram allowing users to search for victims’ contact...

    Several social media companies in the West have been criticised for a perceived lack of transparency in alleged talks with the Iranian authorities on censoring content to the approval of the country’s strict religious authorities. Instagram, currently available in the country – as well as Twitter and YouTube, which are blocked but widely visited by Iranians using proxy servers – have all been reported by local media in recent weeks as as co-operating with the authorities to aid them in blocking or censoring “immoral” content.
