For the most part, people on Instagram seem positive and content. They are earnest and sincere.
But, scrolling through Instagram can quickly turn to an hour, which can feel like nothing compared to the hours spent elsewhere on the internet. What you see is of no particular value.
Following a genre on Instagram can present a wealth of ideas. The algorithm drives users toward content similar to what they've seen or liked. However, this can lead and encourage users toward extremities.
For instance, if you are following fitness gurus or sponsored athletes. Then add some photo-editing to alter the body-image you want to project. At the same time, the algorithm continues to feed you with what you like or want until your feed becomes a mosaic of increasingly extreme exercisers.
Instagram users in search of 'grammable content are mobbing restaurants, public lands and private neighborhoods in pursuit of the perfect image.
New storefronts, restaurants, and art museums are becoming a marketing tool and are optimized for the image. Walking into such places feels like walking into an app.
The algorithm's of Instagram is a hall-of-mirrors. It reveals that more people are posting about staying in. They are struggling with their mental health and looking for a community with fellow sufferers.
Technology might connect you to the world, but it is full of people who are struggling to leave their homes.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
