Popular networking platform, Facebook has debunked claims that it Instagram’s contents could harm children’s well-being.
Sometime ago, Instagram boss Adam Mosseri said the app’s effects on teenagers’ mental health were “quite small”.
A committee was initially set up to identify the ways which Instagram could have a negative impact on body image and self-esteem.
Teenagers had “blame Instagram for increases in the rate of anxiety and depression”, the committee CONFIRMED in unison, Flipmemes reports.
But Ms Davis, Facebook’s defendant, while debunking the allegations told the committee: “We conduct this research, to make our platform better, to minimise the bad and maximise the good and to proactively identify where we can improve.
“We want our platforms to be a place for meaningful interactions with friends and family and we cannot achieve that goal if people do not feel safe.”
