Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Reddit face toxic comments everyday, and unfortunately it is rather difficult to try and put a stop to. If you’re the type of person who’d rather not have your day sullied by toxic comments, then perhaps Tune might be a Chrome extension worth checking out.
Developed by Jigsaw, an offshoot of Alphabet, Tune is an AI-powered Chrome extension that has the ability to hide toxic comments from your view. Tune is built on the company’s previous efforts, Perspective, which launched a couple of years ago which also attempted to fight toxic comments online automatically through machine learning.
Users will have the option of tuning the comments to their preferred levels, where they can opt to hide all toxic comments completely, or turn it off and allow everything in, or set it somewhere in the middle where you get a nice mix of both if you’d rather not completely sanitized comments.
However according to Jigsaw, they note that the machine learning used by Tune is still very much experimental which means that it might work in some instances, and it might not in other instances, but they’re working on improving it. If this is an extension you might be interested in, you can download it via the Chrome Web Store.
