  • No filter: According to Facebook’s own internal research, Instagram makes body image issues worse for what percentage of teenage girls? (answer below)

  • According to internal Facebook presentation slides unearthed by the Wall Street Journal, nearly one-third of teenage girls reported that Instagram made them have a worse body image. “Teens blame Instagram for increases in the rate of anxiety and depression,” another internal slide stated. “This reaction was unprompted and consistent across all groups.”
