How to delete comments on Instagram
To delete comments on Instagram, you can go to your profile and select the three dots in the top right corner of the comment box. This will bring up a drop-down menu that contains different options. From here, you can tap ‘Delete’ which will permanently remove the comment from your post while still leaving it visible to your followers. You can also select ‘Hide Comment’, which will hide the comment from other viewers but leave it visible to your followers. However, this is only available after you have received a notification that someone has left a comment on one of your posts. If you want to go into full deleting mode, you can press ‘Confirm Delete Comment’ and then select ‘Remove Comment’ again.

Why you need to delete comments
It may not be the most popular way for Instagram users to interact with their followers, but commenting does have its benefits. For instance, people who comment on your posts are more likely to click through and engage with your business’s account on a larger scale. This can also mean more exposure for your business in the form of retweets and likes.
Sometimes, though, comments can be really rude or you may find them engaging in conversation you don’t want to be involved in. If this is the case and you need to remove comments from an Instagram post, here are some tips that will help you delete them without any hassle.
How to report a comment
If you have seen a comment that you believe is spam or abusive, you can report it to Instagram. The process isn’t complicated and doesn’t take long.
When reporting an Instagram comment, you must include the comment’s username, date and time of when the comment was made, and any identifying information about the person who posted this comment.
Finally, be sure to fill out the form with an email address that is registered to your account so you receive an email with a notification from Instagram when someone reports a comment on your account.
Instagram also provides instructions on how to delete comments on Instagram if they are found to be in violation of its terms of service.
What’s the difference between deleting and reporting a comment?
It’s important to know the difference between deleting a comment and reporting a comment. Deleting a comment is essentially erasing it from Instagram. This means that the commenter won’t be able to view what they said, but their comment will still appear on the account. If you report a comment, it will never appear on your account and your followers will only see it if they go back in time through all of their comments.
What are the consequences of deleting or reporting a comment?
If you delete a comment or report one, it will disappear from the user’s feed. This means that your comment will be removed from the post and the person who posted it will never know that you commented on their post to begin with.
You can’t delete a comment if you’ve reported it as spam. If you do, then your account may be temporarily suspended but messages will still appear in the people you follow’s feed.
If someone blocks you after deleting your comments, then they won’t be able to see them again. However, they could unfollow your account and continue to interact with others who have commented on their posts.
Instagram is a social media platform that allows its users to share their photos and videos with the world. It also allows users to comment on each other’s pictures, which can be a great way to get feedback or share your thoughts on a particular photo or video. However, it’s important to know that you can delete or report comments, which can be helpful in some cases.
