Maybe @instagram Cant ID #Depression

instagramI have Facebook, like an obscene number of world citizens. I have Twitter, like 300-million others. I even have a slow-release YouTube channel. However, I don’t have Instagram. According to a couple of researchers, if I did – any sign of depression would be spotted. But according to Wired, that’s hogwash. Using a specific filter doesn’t mean too much. Visually, we put out a certain vibe. But look into the tone, nuances, and content for a clearer understanding of our headspace. Instagram isn’t the be-all/end-all of mental health but it certainly keeps your Valencia filter busy if you’re depressed, or just looking for baby names.
