Instagram, a popular photo-sharing platform owned by Facebook, says it will bring a new feature to teenagers on its platform.
In its platform, new measures have been introduced to help teenagers stay away from harmful content and “take a break” from the platform, with parental controls being put in place to help teenage users manage their Instagram account and monitor teenagers.
This is the result of the recent report that Instagram has a negative impact on the mental health of young people, and our systems are seeing that teens are repeatedly watching the same thing on Instagram and this is not conducive to their well-being.
As such, we are going to keep teenagers away from harmful things on stage. And new measures are being introduced, such as “take a break,” a spokesman for Instagram said.
Instagram, which is part of Facebook, is very popular in the adolescent community. Former Facebook data scientist Frances Hagen has drawn up Facebook’s business strategies, according to documents that have had a shocking impact on young minds.
According to the report, 13.5% of adolescent girls feel suicidal due to Instagram, while 17% say it worsens their eating habits.
According to Facebook research, these adolescent girls are getting more and more depressed by posts related to food, which is making it more and more optional.
In an interview with Hagen, Hagen described the effects of Instagram, saying that they “hate their bodies more and more.”
Through all its services, Facebook is capitalizing on this hardship. But we can recall that Facebook’s former employee data scientist Frances Haagen said that Facebook was different.
