Internal documents quantify the proportion of young people suffering from Instagram. At the heart of the problem is the social comparison with influencers and fashion muses. The competition between platforms could well shift to the protection of teens.

“We worsen the relationship to his body of one in three teenagers. "The report emanates from Instagram itself at the end of an internal investigation revealed by the " Wall Street Journal " . Social networks, like fashion magazines, contribute to the maintenance of beauty stereotypes and this is nothing new. But according to this study, some problems are specific to Instagram.

What is new is that the company would be aware of the shortcomings of its platform. "One in five teenagers say Instagram makes them feel worse, British teenage girls are the most negative," is the headline of a "internal presentation page" published by the "WSJ". In this country, 23% of teenage girls feel "rather bad" because of Instagram, 2% would feel "very bad". The proportion is 18% (and 3%) among American teens.

The negative influence of Instagram does not spare boys: 13% of young Britons would feel "rather bad", as well as 12% of American teens. So, we can see the glass half full… The study also reveals that 12% of American teenagers feel “much better” thanks to Instagram and 29% feel “rather better”. But on Instagram, those who are doing badly are in the millions.

Comply with social stereotypes

What's wrong ? In another “slide”, Instagram explains that “teens are actually aware that it can be bad for their mental health, yet they are forced to spend time on the app for fear of missing a cultural or social trend” .

The social network even documents the origins of this suffering: “Pressure to conform to social stereotypes, to compare oneself to the wealth and physical beauty of influencers, need for validation with views and likes, hypersexualization of girls…” Already in 2017, a study by the Royal Society for Public Health qualified Instagram as “the worst social network for the mental health of young people”.

Protection of minors on the Internet: the British CNIL toughens the rules

"We are working more and more on comparisons [of his body with that of others, Editor's note] and the negative image of the body," said Instagram on Tuesday in a statement. The platform says it is thinking about ways to react "when we see that people dwell on certain types of images".

“The article focuses on findings from limited studies and puts them in a bad light,” replied Karina Newton, Instagram's director of public policy. But this research shows "our commitment to understanding these complex topics."

Still unclear safeguards

Among the avenues for improvement, Facebook researchers have suggested that Instagram offers “fun” filters rather than filters focused on beautification. In 2019, the platform backtracked and removed “cosmetic surgery effect” filters that magnify the lips and smooth the skin. In the other direction, Boston University alerted in 2018 to what it called the "Snapchat Dysmorphia", where when teens are operated to look like filters.

In March, Facebook researchers also reportedly proposed reducing exposure to fashion and beauty content, favoring that of close friends instead. An idea quickly swept aside by an employee in an internal discussion. He sets the tone: “Isn't that what Instagram is? Offer a glimpse into the very photogenic life of the top 0.1%? ". A former company executive abound: “People use Instagram because it's a competition. This is the fun part. "

How to get teens off their screens?

Internal documents claim that Instagram has approached associations to promote what it calls "emotional resilience", including through videos. Karina Newton, she hopes that a system of incentives to watch content that "inspires and exalts" young users could help "to change this part of the culture of Instagram which focuses on appearances."

TikTok announces measures for teens

While waiting for a more concrete response from the platform, its main competitor, TikTok, has taken the lead. The social network popular with the youngest announces a series of measures. To help teens struggling with mental health issues, it will distribute wellness and nutrition guides.  

In July, Pinterest went so far as to ban ads promoting weight loss. In 2019, Instagram had also reduced advertising on diets and cosmetic surgery . This year he also tried to reduce the power of "likes" ; another potential driver of discomfort.

If Instagram is looking at the limits of its influence on the youngest, it is also because it is preparing a version for the under 13s of its social network. In April, children's rights activists in a letter urged Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to abandon the project.

TikTok targeted by the Irish CNIL for its management of personal data for under 18s

Very popular with teenagers, the short video application TikTok is also of great interest to the regulator in matters of personal data protection in Ireland. The local CNIL has just opened two investigations against the competing Chinese platform of Instagram, Youtube and Snapchat.

Why is Facebook losing active users?

Alain roache

Facebook is attracting less and less teenagers, who already consider it a bit “has-been”.

Snapchat should even be more popular than Facebook among those under 24 in 2018. Facebook can however take comfort in Instagram , which it owns, and which is also growing strongly among teens .teenagers ..

This is because teens prefer visual and interactive content much more, which they find on Instagram and Snapchat.

Is Twitter the most popular social network?

I have been living off my blogs since

Hi, no. Right now it's Facebook with 2.6 billion monthly active visitors. Then there is  Instagram  with 1 billion users and TikTok with 800 million users. Twitter, meanwhile, has only 330 million users. Right now, the exploding social network is TikTok. At first, it was mainly teens  who signed up on the platform, but recently a much larger audience has started to use it.

Original answer: How do you teach young people to use Facebook when they think they know everything?

I looked at the beginning of your PDF…

Today young people from 8 to 17 years old are on Tik Tok and Snapchat.

Snapchat seems really very limited for the safety of the youngest.

Then as they grow up they go to Instagram ...

Around me I have lots of children and teenagers .... none is on Facebook.

You should not limit yourself to Facebook to give safety instructions.

From the moment you are on the internet, it is advisable to act with a certain caution whatever the sites and / or social networks.

Hello,

I consider myself to have been an average Instagram member , around 700 followers and 500 subscriptions, visiting Instagram regularly during the day and posting once every 2–3 weeks. It's been two months since I first uninstalled the application from my phone and then deactivated my account (as well as Snapchat), because I sometimes wanted to occupy myself by taking a look from Safari.Instagram during the day and posting once every 2–3 weeks.

It's been two months since I first uninstalled the application from my phone and then deactivated my account (as well as Snapchat), because I sometimes wanted to occupy myself by taking a look from Safari.

I'm doing wonderfully, I'm actually happier.

I no longer constantly have advertisements for articles that I don't need but the envy of which is created in my brain, I no longer envy the "good" life of others that people want to show me, I no longer compare myself to these images and feel guilty about not being good enough. I have a lot more free time, and I enjoy doing things without having that little voice approving it in my head under the pretext that it's Instagrammable. And above all, I take more time to talk with those around me and see it in person rather than thinking that I already know everything because they have exposed it on social networks.

Ah yes, I realized how much time I was wasting to see the life of celebrities appear on my screen, with which I really have nothing to do, and I use this energy and this time to do myself good. to me.

I realized how much social networks are a source of anxiety and complexes, we always think it's okay because everyone (at least a large part of my generation and teenagers today) are bathing in this virtual life, but is far from normal, I notice in my entourage how much they attach importance to social networks and their virtual image. today) is bathed in this virtual life, but is far from normal, I notice in my entourage how much they attach importance to social networks and their virtual image. today) is bathed in this virtual life, but is far from normal, I notice in my entourage how much they attach importance to social networks and their virtual image.

What are the five social networks that you would recommend for professional use? And why ?

Lisa Korrigane

License from University of Rouen ( Diploma obtained in 2015 ) March 6, 2017

For professional use, it is difficult to do without LinkedIn (all countries) and Viadéo (for the French). This is a minimum for serious visibility.

A Facebook Page is also essential: its adoption rate is the highest for a network.

Twitter is discussed as a network to transmit information because we tend to publish more often which is time consuming. On the other hand, it is a great monitoring tool that I cannot recommend highly enough in this use.

Regarding the other networks, it depends on the profession exercised. It is clear that a photographer will not ignore Instagram , just as a designer of decorative objects will be on Pinterest., just like a decorative object designer will be on Pinterest., just like a decorative object designer will be on Pinterest.

The choice of network also depends on the target: there may be specific networks depending on the profession. And if there is a marketing goal: the target will define the network ( teenagers = Snapchat). = Snapchat). = Snapchat).

Do not neglect the time-consuming component of the animation of profiles so it is preferable to limit the networks but to have quality and regular communication.


Is there anything on TikTok other than antics and other swaying teens ? who sway? who sway?

Newt Volodina

without internet I cry.

Sure !

There are series of very short films (several one-minute episodes), some of which are very well done.

We can also find politics (if you follow me, you can imagine that this is the "side of TikTok" where I am), educational accounts (like, advice for writers, makeup tips or still teaching a culture), cosplay, drawing, sewing, even mechanics!

TikTok is a social network like any other and is as diverse as Twitter, Instagram , Tumblr, or whatever, can be., Tumblr, or whatever, can be., Tumblr, or whatever, can be.

Have two stars ever come to blows publicly for a women's story?

Writer Updated January 18

I think back to that evening in July

It was a hot night in Ibiza.

Orlando Bloom, the teen idol , had come to have fun in a nightclub., had come to have fun in a nightclub., had come to have fun in a nightclub.

But Justin Bieder, the idol of teenagers , had the same idea., had the same idea., had the same idea.

The tension was palpable.

The young first were at loggerheads.

Orlando was in a relationship with model Miranda Kerr at the time. Justin was in a relationship with Selena Gomez.

Only here, Orlando had approached Selena Gomez a few months earlier… And Justin had approached Miranda some time earlier… It was said that they had even slept together.


Orlando Bloom had not forgotten ...

Like a Sicilian lover whose honor had been sullied, the Legolas of the Lord of the Rings could not contain his rage when he saw Justin Bieber greet him with a wave of the hand with a teasing smile.

Listening only to her ardor, he rushed over to the singer and asked him what his problem was.

Accounts differ on what happened next.

Some say that Justin wanted to shake hands with Orlando but that the latter would have insulted him in return. Still others claim that Justin just said to Orlando "I fucked your girl!".

We will probably never know the truth …

What we do know is that Orlando ended up throwing a punch in Justin's direction. Not being a brawler in real life but rather an actor who plays brawlers, the blow went nowhere and the brawl did not have time to break out.

The bodyguards separated the two seething ephebes and each went home.

Later that night, Justin Bieber allowed himself a little jab to his opponent, however, posting this photo of Miranda Kerr on Instagram . That he withdrew a few minutes later ...this photo of Miranda Kerr. That he withdrew a few minutes later ...this photo of Miranda Kerr. That he withdrew a few minutes later ...


It is reminiscent of the most beautiful pages of the work of Alexandre Dumas ...

Instagram  was accused a few years ago of being dangerous to mental health.

It is unfortunately societal. The whole image:  instagram , snapchat, tiktok… The image is at the center of the life of teenage girls. This image is often truncated (adult influencer pretending to be  teenagers , filters and montages ..) This culture of the perfect, of influence, of the race to like in a stage of identity research can be dramatic. It is advisable to accompany your child, to reassure her and to encourage her by valuing her. Lastly, remain vigilant so that your thirst for a perfect body does not turn into a more serious pathology.

Why is 'Cute' (a Netflix movie) getting so many negative reviews?

Joelle ballestraz

Netflix Binger Updated March 19

There you go, after several readings and hearing the two bell rings, I finally made the decision to watch 'Cute' and can finally write my answer knowingly. First, let's talk about the film itself, omitting the controversy of the subject: the film can be watched, the actresses are convincing in their roles and especially for their age and some scenes I liked by their rhythm and some elements of surprises well found. However, the many scriptwriting holes do not manage to make this film a work that really holds up. The narrative changes are lazy and never justified, the director makes the main character evolve in extreme directions without ever really explaining them. It is very poor. And we come to the controversy

Why in American series and films are underage teens twenty-five years old? minors 25 years old?

Adil El Nhayli

I love cinema and literature January 28

This is not always the case, there are actors who started very early and who have played roles of their ages (or in their age bracket, at 3 years old), like Christina Ricci, Natalie Portman , Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, Elijah Wood, Lindsay Lohan, Jena Malone, Anna Paquin, etc. Note that these actors started playing as children, so when they applied for teenage roles or High school students, they already had a full CV and years of experience, sometimes with great directors or on great films.

For the rest, there is a main reason, it is the financial aspect. Producers, who are the people who pay for a series or a movie to be made, advance money without knowing if the end product will give a return on its investment.

So casting directors prefer actors and actresses who will attract the most audiences, who will have the talent, and especially the charisma, and this in particular if the audience is young. They want actors and actresses that teens are going to want to display in their bedrooms, follow on Instagram , and fantasize about. All of this will generate merchandising (sales of derivative products) and push people to consume.

It's marketing., and which they will fantasize about. All of this will generate merchandising (sales of derivative products) and push people to consume. It's marketing.

And there is also the fact that major players are easier to manage than minor players, especially in terms of working conditions - because child labor is highly regulated. Some actors and actresses had to make a legal request for emancipation (with the consent of their parents) in order to be able to work outside the restrictive limits.

Being from Generation Z, I hate that they cannot speak or / and spell the French language correctly, and I lived it

By Instagram message, a high school student, instead of saying "Hello, who are you?"

Was that "Wesh t ki toi"?

I was shocked, no address and no respect for the French language.

I hate teenagers who harass those who have good grades in college, I have been called a nerd several times, a friend of mine had asked a girl if she wanted to go out with him, she refused because it was a nerd" who harasses those who have good grades in college, I have been called a nerd several times, a friend of mine had asked a girl if she wanted to go out with him, she refused because he was a "nerd"

I hate it when they scooter, like 14/1516 years old, without a helmet and totally illegal.

I hate young people between 12 and 17 who smoke, when they have their whole lives ahead of them.

I hate it when he has no respect for the elders.

I'm sick of their "Wesh" used far too often, and many don't know the exact meaning.

I am a 12 year old girl and I would like to lose weight. Can you give me tips, exercises and diets to lose weight? I am not looking to spend money.

Aurélie Llagostera

Multilingual Content Creator & Translator at Plastoria

Original answer: I am a 12 year old girl and I would like to lose weight. Can you give me tips, exercises and diets to lose weight? I am not looking to spend money.

First of all, you are 12 years old and… are on YEET MAGAZINE . So on the one hand I find it much more interesting than Snapchat, Tik Tok or Instagram , but aren't you a bit young for such diverse content?

let's skip this parenthesis, at your age I would surely have been here too.

I have many qustions:

are you overweight and / or overweight?

are you of normal build but complexed by what you see on the networks?

I will therefore answer both

if you are overweight, something more and more frequent due to the sedentary lifestyle of children and young teens these days (smartphone, fast food, candies and cookies, soda, video games, PC, etc.), the solutions are to live "old-fashioned": no soda except Sundays, favor water. Replace candies and cookies with fruits or dried fruit bars, go outside to play rather than inside, take 10,000 steps a day, and practice a sport! If you are really looking to lose weight you need a sport that plays on cardio and endurance or a sport that is done regularly: swimming, running, cycling, boxing for example.

If you are simply looking to change your lifestyle, any sport is beneficial and if you do not want to be alone, practice a team sport: dance, volleyball, handball,

if you are not overweight but only self-conscious, stop right away.

I would simply tell you to limit sugar without obsessing yourself, to hydrate yourself, to move as much as possible (as above) but above all to shut down your social networks and to love yourself! I am a 28 year old girl, I am very slim and slender by nature, and have never eaten badly, yet I too have cellulite in some places, I do not find myself ideal because society makes us see something else, but to reassure you I'm going to post you the bodies of some stars who on the networks seem to be made of wax because they are so smooth and perfect.

Networks are a showcase where you expose things by adjusting the light and changing what is wrong, networks are not real life.
