Instagram Now Allows Disabling Comments On Posts

As part of it's ongoing efforts to combat trolling and abuse, Instagram now allows users to disable comments on posts. I'm not sure what the purpose of posting content online without allowing comments is but, if you are having problems with that, I guess the ability to disable them is a good thing.

We’ll soon add a way to turn off comments on any post. Sometimes there may be moments when you want to let your post stand on its own. Previously this was only available for a small number of accounts. In a few weeks, it will be available for everyone. Tap "Advanced Settings" before you post and then select "Turn Off Commenting." You can also tap the آ… menu any time after posting to turn commenting back on.
