Instagram is totally dangerous.
I don’t know about you, but I love great photos.
I actually think IG is more addictive than Facebook, which is already so problematic that I avoid it entirely, because procrastination is not really my friend.
What Instagram has on Facebook is positivity (well, yes, this does depend a bit on who you follow, but stay with me here). Stunning photos make you feel something. It’s visceral.
Studies even show that just seeing pictures of nature contributes to mental health and overall well-being.
Photos that are inspiring and uplifting make you dream of what’s next rather than dwell on what’s past (hello looking into what your high school ex is up to these days on Facebook! I’m looking at you :)).
That’s why we have focused our company instagram, @dotravelwriting, specifically around this particular aspect of Instragram.
