Abstract: Various images and videos are uploaded every day on Instagram. Shared images include tobacco products and can be encouraging for young people when they are accessible. In this study, it is aimed to classify tobacco products with various convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and to limit the access of young users to these classified tobacco products over the internet. 2008 public images were collected from Instagram, and feature vectors were extracted with various CNNs and CNN was determined to be proper for classification tobacco products. The classification of 5 different tobacco products was realized by using the networks and the classification performance rate was obtained as 99.50% for 402 test images via MobileNet, which gave the highest results 99.11% as average. In this way, the content including tobacco products, can be filtered with a high accuracy rate and a secure Internet environment can be provided for young people.
