Instagram offering Affiliate Program Soon – Keyword Muting in DMs. After supporting the reels on the Instagram Lite app late last month, the Facebook-owned image-sharing platform is now in the process of hosting new features. These include a new affiliate marketing program, the option to mute specific keywords in direct messaging, and more.
Instagram New Feature Update 2021:
Android developer and reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi recently shared screenshots that reflect all of the above features. As you can see in the attached tweets, Instagram is working on an affiliate marketing program that influences them to monetize their content on the platform.

Instagram Content Control Feature:
A new affiliate setting will appear in the creator’s section of the app and users will be able to sign up for it by following a few simple steps. However, the initial marketing feature may not be available to all customers.
Additionally, Instagram is working on a new “Content Control” setting that allows users to block specific keywords in their direct messages. Settings appear in the Privacy section of the app and allow users to add the keywords they want to mute. The app will block all direct messages, which will automatically contain the specified keyword. Users can choose whether to enable keyword blocking for all or specific accounts.

Additionally, Palazzi found that Instagram works on a new post editing option called Brightness.AI. Although we have no definite information about this feature at the moment, it is safe to assume that it will help users adjust the brightness of their posts automatically.
All of the above features are currently under development and there is no official word from Instagram about their release. We will update this post as soon as we learn more about them.
