In addition to sharing submissions, Instagram users can also give likes and comments to other users' posts. However, the comment feature is often misused, for example it is used for cyberbullying which includes one act against the law. But until now, Instagram still does not provide a feature to detect cyberbullying. Therefore, this study aims to create a system that can classify comments whether they contain elements of cyberbullying or not. The results of the classification will be used to detect cyberbullying comments. The algorithm used for classification is Naïve Bayes Classifier.
