Wall Street Journal report calling Instagram toxic for teen girls prompts Facebook changes

A new published report by the Wall Street Journal says that Instagram is bad for the mental health of its younger users.

The Wall Street Journal found that Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, is making young people, particularly teenage girls, feel worse about themselves and their body image. The newspaper says that internal research was conducted by Facebook, which is unwilling to show it to the public.

According to the research, teens blame Instagram for an increase in anxiety and depression.

The research found 32% of teenage girls said they felt bad about their bodies and Instagram only made them feel worse.
