Instagram 2.0


#161

Oh hi


#162

Really like instagram (and +1 for a fan of your quality content @rangus) but find when I’m in my worst places with MH etc I post less and less.


#163

yeah. social media is absolutely the worst for mental health. i go through long periods of wanting to delete all my accounts when my mh is bad.


#164

I find a lot of the private groups i’m in on fb really helpful, and twitter was helpful until I remembered my estranged father and some colleagues follow me on there so I generally retreat to non-‘normie’ areas.


#165

This is excellent. Following!


#166

Instagram is the one social medium which is a positive thing for my mh, actually. a nice outlet for things that I wouldn’t otherwise get to express.


#167

I absolutely feel this way. Creating these little pieces over the last year has been so good for my mh. Feel I’ve never been more expressive with my work. Met and connected with so many truly wonderful people. Feel genuinely less alone thanks to it.


#168

I’m an empty vessel so I don’t have much to share to be honest (thought about doing something the other day but thought it would be too risky/scary for some)
It’s good in terms of it making me smile sometimes, but in terms of sharing anything, I just dry up.


#169

aww man :frowning: I find it hard to believe you’re an empty vessel? why do you feel that way?

would be interested in knowing more about the risky/scary thing…


#170

I will DM you


#171

I see now they’re now forcibly inserting recommendations into your feed :disappointed:


#172

Yeah this is super annoying


#173

I’m still getting posts in my newsfeed from before Christmas. It’s so, so shit. Awful UX tbh tbf bbq


#174

Got back on this last year to be a travel wanker, think i have a few of ye on it already


#175

Turns out you can turn them off


#176

oh yeah, noticed that! irked :confused:


#177

I am ma0sm on Instagram too


#178

Hmm, that sounds like it means don’t recommend me to others rather than don’t show me recommendations


#179

yeah you’re right but google seems to think it works?
