Beware of excess Photoshop: Instagram could erase your photos

Why is Instagram hiding photoshoped photos?

Instagram recently decided to try to deal with news and fake images (the calls «fake news«, One of the great evils Internet of recent times) with a new function that is responsible for pointing and alerting the user in your feed about photos that are not real. For this, the platform uses a combination of user reports together with an automatic recognition system, which is responsible for pointing out the suspicious content that is then sent to independent (human) verifiers for review and subsequent confirmation as “fake”.

Instagram

So far so good, right? After all, it is a system that is responsible for detecting images that could disseminate false information and that are ultimately reviewed by people for final verification. The problem arises when this idea failure and they begin to be identified as false artistic images that at no time pursue the malicious intention of the photos against which Instagram wants to fight.

That is just what the photographer Toby Harriman denounces on his Facebook, where he notes that walking through his feed he found a hidden and cataloged photo as “False information” and that upon discovering it turned out to be an artistic image (effectively, edited, but with a totally innocent purpose).

These types of accounts and their photos could be seen very damaged on Instagram, since it is not only a matter of seeing a notice in our feed – after all, you just have to touch on «View post» and the image will be displayed again -: this type of posts, cataloged as «Information false ”, they are removed from the Explore section (so visibility to new followers is reduced) as well as hashtags searches (again, users who do not know a certain account will be less likely to find it, if their photos do not appear in your searches).

We will have to see how the social network manages this problem. We assume that it will be a matter of more accounts being affected and beginning to generate noise …
