Instagram Is Not Like Drugs: Instagram Head

Adam Mosseri, head of the social sharing application Instagram, has denied all allegations against the app, saying that Instagram is neither harmful to teenagers nor is it “addictive” like people.

According to Reuters, Adam Moussari, in his statement before the US Congress, rejected all the inquiries regarding Instagram, calling the September 2021 Wall Street Journal report untrue. ۔

Adam Mussry said that there are definitely some flaws when creating an account on the desktop version of Instagram but it is absolutely wrong that ‘Instagram’ is like a ‘drug’ that is making young people and especially girls ‘addicted’. ۔

He claimed that Instagram has taken all possible steps to make the application secure for girls between the ages of 13 and 17, and especially for girls, and that every effort is made to ensure that teenagers do not see any inappropriate content. ۔

Adam Moussari said he did not believe the Wall Street Journal’s report that Instagram was like a “drug” that was making young people, especially girls, addicted to the app.

Adam Moussari also said that in the middle of 2022, a chronological feed will be introduced on Instagram, which will give everyone the option to view the things they like on their feed.

The head of Instagram said that at the moment, Instagram’s algorithm shows each person’s profile and their search history, likes and dislikes, on similar posts feeds, but in 2022, the series will be changed.

In September of this year, the Wall Street Journal reported that an internal study of Instagram had found that Instagram could have a negative effect on the mental health of young people.

The report said that the results of the study were presented to the company in 2019, which found that one in three young girls using Instagram face a body image issue.

According to the report, the youth also said that the use of Instagram also increases their mental anxiety and depression.
