Never mind Facebook bragging, INSTAGRAM is the most depressing social network due to the smug photos we post

A journalist for U.S magazine Slate puts forward the idea that Instagram is the most depressing social network, and is worse than Facebook for people bragging, posting smug photos and creating feelings of jealousy

Excerpt from this article:

Instagram is the most depressing social network and even worse than Facebook, according to a U.S magazine.

Jessica Winter from Slate claims that Instagram takes the parts of Facebook that make people feel depressed and unsatisfied with their lot, such as looking at other people’s photos and friend’s broadcasting how great their lives are, and accentuates them.

This then creates feelings of intense jealousy and also crosses the ‘grey line of stalkerism’.
