Instagram Will Remove Filters And Masks With Scary Effects
The Instagram application will remove plastic surgeons’ filters from their AR effects, Spark AR (company-developer of masks and filters for the application) announced. Source: Existing masks with such effects will be deleted, and the addition of new ones will be postponed. This also applies to those virtual filters that the company creates, and custom developments. According to the developers, filters with the effect of plastic surgery negatively affect users mental state, changing their perception of themselves and imposing unhealthy standards of beauty, but using Spark AR effects should be a “positive experience”.
