Now, users can go to carousel post, click the three-dots symbol in the top-right corner of the post, tap ‘edit’, swipe to the photo they want to delete and then tap the delete icon that’s appeared in the top left corner.
Mosseri said Instagram users have been asking for Carousel Deletion for a while, but it’s finally available globally.
Last week, Mosseri appeared in a similar video to announce the availability of another feature currently in testing, called Take a Break.
Take a Break lets Instagram users opt-in to receive prompts to stop using the photo-sharing app – every 10, 20 or 30 minutes.
Instagram is owned by social media giant Meta, which was known as Facebook until October 28, 2021
It’s rolling out as part of a test for a small sample of Instagram users, but all accounts could get it ‘in a month or two’.
Unlike Take a Break, which is just a test feature, Rage Shake and Carousel Deletion have been rolled out permanently.
If it does get a full rollout following user feedback, Take a Break could help cut ‘Instagram addiction’, which has been linked to harmful effects on mental health.
SCIENTISTS WARN THERE ARE ALMOST 50 HARMFUL EFFECTS LINKED TO THE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA SITES SUCH AS FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM
There are almost 50 harmful effects linked to the use of social media, a 2021 study reveals – and they’re not just mental health-related.
Academics at the University of Technology Sydney report a hefty 46 harmful effects linked to the use of sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
For the study, the team reviewed more than 50 research articles published between 2003 and 2018.
In 2003, social media was still in its infancy and Facebook wouldn’t be established for another year. One of the early social networks, MySpace, was founded in 2003.
Among the 46 harmful effects of social media were found to be privacy violation, deception, panic, conflict with others and an increased appetite for taking financial risk.
Overall, issues of social media range from physical and mental health problems to negative impacts on job and academic performance, as well as security and privacy issues, according to the academics.
