Tinder Will Ask Users ‘Are You Sure?’ Before Sending Offensive Messages
Tinder’s latest safety feature (AYS?) “Are You Sure?” prompts users to stop and think twice before sending an offensive message. The feature aims to reduce harassment on the online dating platform by using artificial intelligence (AI) to detect detrimental language and intervened to prevent an instance of abuse.
Tinder had earlier introduced the “Does This Bother You?” feature to furnish support to users when offensive language was detected in received messages. Tech companies including Instagram and YouTube have employed similar technology to alert users before sending offensive comments.
The (AYS?) “Are You Sure?” prompt intervenes to caution a sender that the message may be offensive and asks them to pause before hitting send. The California-based company told in its blog that the AI is trained on what users have reported in the past. The company also reported that members who saw the prompt were less likely to be reported for improper messages over the next month.
“The early results from these features show us that intervention done the right way can be meaningful in changing behavior,” said Tracey Breeden, Head of Safety and Social Advocacy for Match Group.
Tinder had introduced the “Does This Bother You?” feature that provided support to users when offensive language was detected in the messages they had received. Apart from Tinder social media platforms like Instagram and Youtube have got a similar system in place to alert users before posting offensive comments.
In MARCH, Instagram confirmed that it is permitting users to block or prohibit multiple accounts from the comments section of their posts as a part of a limited test. The social media company told that it was a part of its broader efforts to help fight bullying and harassment on the platform.
In DECEMBER 2020, YouTube introduced new features to its platform to support miscellaneous communities and encourage respectful interactions. YouTube will also test a new filter in YouTube Studio for potentially inappropriate and detrimental comments that have been automatically held for review, so that channel landlords won’t have to look at those comments if they don’t want to.
