Makes me want to be vegan. Luckily he didn't die :. According to Stokes, learning large bodies of knowledge can often start with trivia. And people who are interested in trivia can be brainy, have a high IQ, and be smart on a lot of levels.
And he was relentlessly opposed by the Ethyl Corporation makers of lead gasoline additive and its bought-and-paid-for politicians. For decades. So if a person is very interested in history, then they may either seek out history trivia, or they might just naturally pick it up in the course of learning about nontrivial aspects of history. Except, you know, for the Geographic North Pole. Even if it is ice and not solid land. Stokes pointed out that trying to retain information about things we're interested in can be like a good exercise for the frontal cortex as the brain ages.
Of course, it's completely understandable if all the stress and negativity sometimes drains your brain of the desire to learn and exhausts it instead. In an earlier Bored Panda interview , Lenore Skenazy, the president of Let Grow and the founder of the Free-Range-Kids movement , said that before we can become curious again, we have to do the hard part: get off the couch. Force yourself out the door.
Because beyond your four walls, things are never exactly the same. Little known fact. The German soldier could have easily escaped but felt too bad depriving the little guy of his moment. During the Holocaust in Greece, the entire, person Jewish population of the island of Zakynthos was not deported after Mayor Loukas Karrer and Bishop Chrysostomos — refused Nazi orders to turn in a list of the members of the town's Jewish community for deportation to the death camps.
Instead they secretly hid the town's Jews in various rural villages and turned in a list that included only their own two names. The entire Jewish population survived the war.

Also in , Instagram rolled out a feature titled "suggested posts", which adds posts from accounts Instagram thinks a user would like to such user's feed. On June 23, , Instagram announced a test change to the "suggested posts" feature. The company will put suggested posts ahead of posts from people that the user is following in the Instagram feed, citing positive reception as the reason for this change.
Lamp et al. A paper showed that users who feel that they spend too much time on Instagram report higher levels of addiction to Instagram, which in turn was related to higher self-reported levels of stress induced by the app.
In a study focusing on the relationship between various psychological needs and addiction to Instagram by students, Foroughi et al. In addition, the study proved that addiction to Instagram negatively affects academic performance. Facebook has known for years that its Instagram app is harmful to a number of teenagers, according to research seen by The Wall Street Journal , but the company concealed the knowledge from lawmakers.
One study found that introduction to celebrity and peer pictures expanded women's negative mood . Internal Facebook presentations seen by the Journal in show that Instagram is toxic to a sizable percentage of its users, particularly teenage girls. The presentations were seen by the company's executives and the findings mentioned to Mark Zuckerberg in , but when asked in March about Instagram's effect on young people, Zuckerberg defended the company's plan to launch an Instagram product for children under When asked by senators for its internal findings on the impact of Instagram on youth mental health, Facebook sent a six-page letter but did not include the company's research.
The company told Forbes that its research is "kept confidential to promote frank and open dialogue and brainstorming internally. In a blog post, Instagram said that the WSJ story "focuses on a limited set of findings and casts them in a negative light. On September 27, , weeks after the WSJ report was released, Facebook announced it had "paused" development of Instagram Kids, the Instagram product aimed at children. The company stated it was looking into concerns raised by the regulators and parents.
Adam Mosseri stated that the company would return to the project as "[t]he reality is that kids are already online, and we believe that developing age-appropriate experiences designed specifically for them is far better for parents than where we are today. Notably, depression was mitigated by the perception of popularity. Multiple studies confirmed that Instagram usage is associated with body surveillance and body self-image. In particular, following appearance-focused Instagrammers corresponded with the desire to look thin.
Comments related to appearance on Instagram are leading to higher dissatisfactions with one's body. According to the leaked research, Instagram has higher impact on appearance comparison than TikTok or Snapchat. Mackson et al. The relationship between Instagram usage intensity and wellbeing varies by wellbeing indicator. The association between Instagram membership and conscientiousness was marginally significantly negative. The same study showed a positive relationship between extraversion, life satisfaction, social support and Instagram membership.
Fioravanti et al. The effects seemed to be specific for women, where no significant differences were observed for men. Instagram usage intensity shows a small positive correlation with alcohol consumption, with binge drinkers reporting greater intensity of Instagram use than non-binge drinkers. It found a small to moderate positive relationship between alcohol consumption and Instagram usage, enhanced drinking motives, and drinking behavior.
The relationship between Instagram use and the fear of missing out FoMo has been confirmed in multiple studies. Research shows that Instagram browsing predicts social comparison, which generates FoMo, and FoMo can ultimately lead to depression.
A comparison of Instagram users with non-users showed that boys with an Instagram account differ from boys without an account in terms of over-evaluation of their shape and weight, skipping meals, and levels of reported disordered eating cognitions. Girls with an Instagram account also differed from girls without an account in terms of skipping meals. However, none of the other associations that were reported for boys were observed for girls.
Instead, girls with an Instagram account differed from girls without an account in that they used a stricter exercise schedule. This suggests a possible differential effect of Instagram membership on body dis satisfaction and disordered eating for boys and girls. More specifically, several studies identified a small positive relationship between time spent on Instagram and both internalization of beauty ideals or muscular ideals, and self-objectification across studies.
Sharenting refers to the action of parents posting content, including images, about their children online. Instagram is one of the most popular social media channels for sharenting. The hashtag letthembelittle contains 8 million images related to children on Instagram. Bare analysed randomly selected, publicly available images under the hashtag and found that the corresponding images tended to contain personal information of children, including name, age and location.
Picardo et al. At the same time, some benefits for those who engage with self-harm content online have been suggested. Based on Facebook's leaked internal research, 13 percent of British teenager users with suicidal thoughts could trace these thoughts to Instagram use.
Amongst teenagers in the US with suicidal thoughts, this number is much smaller — 6 percent. Starting in June , Instagram was more widely used as a platform for social justice movements including the Black Lives Matter movement.
Instagram can help promote commercial products and services. It can be distinguished from other social media platforms by its focus on visual communication. Instagram marketing is an effective way to advertise a product, given that a picture is said to speak a thousand words.
Following the release in October, Instagram had one million registered users in December In June , Instagram passed million photos uploaded to the service. In October , Instagram Stories reached million active users, two months after launch. In April , Instagram Direct had million monthly users. From June to June , Instagram approximately doubled their number of users.
Ongoing research continues to explore how media content on the platform affects user engagement. Past research has found that media which show peoples' faces receive more 'likes' and comments and that using filters that increase warmth, exposure, and contrast also boosts engagement.
The motives for using Instagram among young people are mainly to look at posts, particularly for the sake of social interactions and recreation. In contrast, the level of agreement expressed in creating Instagram posts was lower, which demonstrates that Instagram's emphasis on visual communication is widely accepted by young people in social communication. In May , a survey conducted by the United Kingdom's Royal Society for Public Health , featuring 1, people aged 14—24, asking them to rate social media platforms depending on anxiety, depression, loneliness, bullying and body image, concluded that Instagram was the "worst for young mental health".
Some have suggested it may contribute to digital dependence , whist this same survey noticed its positive effects, including self-expression, self-identity, and community building. In response to the survey, Instagram stated that "Keeping Instagram a safe and supportive place for young people was a top priority". If some of the accounts violate Instagram's community guidelines, it will take action, which could include banning them.
In , researchers from Harvard University and University of Vermont demonstrated a machine learning tool that successfully outperformed general practitioners' diagnostic success rate for depression. The tool used color analysis, metadata components, and face detection of users' feeds. Correlations have been made between Instagram content and poor body dissatisfaction, as a result of body comparisons.
In a recent survey half of the applicants admitted to photo editing behavior which has been linked with concerns over body image. In October , CNN published an article and interviews on how two young women, Ashlee Thomas and Anastasia Vlasova, say Instagram endangered their lives due to it having toxic effects on their diets.
In response to abusive and negative comments on users' photos, Instagram has made efforts to give users more control over their posts and accompanying comments field. In July , it announced that users would be able to turn off comments for their posts, as well as control the language used in comments by inputting words they consider offensive, which will ban applicable comments from showing up. In June , Instagram announced that it would automatically attempt to filter offensive, harassing, and "spammy" comments by default.
The system is built using a Facebook-developed deep learning algorithm known as DeepText first implemented on the social network to detect spam comments , which utilizes natural-language processing techniques, and can also filter by user-specified keywords.
In September , the company announced that public users would be able to limit who can comment on their content, such as only their followers or people they follow. At the same time, it updated its automated comment filter to support additional languages. In July , the service announced that it would introduce a system to proactively detect problematic comments and encourage the user to reconsider their comment, as well as allowing users the ability to "restrict" others' abilities to communicate with them, citing that younger users felt the existing block system was too much of an escalation.
The participants of the study included actress Amber Heard , journalist Bryony Gordon , television presenter Rachel Riley , activist Jamie Klingler and magazine founder Sharan Dhaliwal. Instagram disputed many of the study's conclusions. In August , reports surfaced that a bug in Instagram's developer tools had allowed "one or more individuals" to gain access to the contact information, specifically email addresses and phone numbers, of several high-profile verified accounts, including its most followed user, Selena Gomez.
The company said in a statement that it had "fixed the bug swiftly" and was running an investigation. The company admitted that "we cannot determine which specific accounts may have been impacted", but believed that "it was a low percentage of Instagram accounts", though TechCrunch stated in its report that six million accounts were affected by the hack, and that "Instagram services more than million accounts; six million is not a small number".
In , Apple pulled an app that let users stalk people on Instagram by scraping accounts and collecting data. Iran has DPI blocking for Instagram. On December 17, , Instagram announced a change to its Terms of Service policy, adding the following sentence: . There was no option for users to opt out of the changed Terms of Service without deleting their accounts before the new policy went into effect on January 16, Citing misinterpretations about its intention to "communicate that we'd like to experiment with innovative advertising that feels appropriate on Instagram", Systrom also stated that it was "our mistake that this language is confusing" and that "it is not our intention to sell your photos".
Furthermore, he wrote that they would work on "updated language in the terms to make sure this is clear". The policy change and its backlash caused competing photo services to use the opportunity to "try to lure users away" by promoting their privacy-friendly services,  and some services experienced substantial gains in momentum and user growth following the news.
We could have had the exact same freakout last week, or a year ago, or the day Instagram launched". The policy update also introduced an arbitration clause, which remained even after the language pertaining to advertising and user content had been modified. Columbia Law School professor Tim Wu has given public talks explaining that Facebook's purchase of Instagram was a felony.
Wu stated that this document was an email directly from Mark Zuckerberg , whereas the Post article had stated that their source had declined to say whether the high-ranking executive was the CEO. The article reported that the FTC "has formed a task force to review "anticompetitive conduct" in the tech world amid concerns that tech companies are growing too powerful.
The task force will look at "the full panoply of remedies" if it finds "competitive harm," FTC competition bureau director Bruce Hoffman told reporters. In , Olivia Solon, a reporter for The Guardian , posted a screenshot to her Instagram profile of an email she had received containing threats of rape and murder towards her. The photo post had received three likes and countless comments, and in September , the company's algorithms turned the photo into an advertisement visible to Solon's sister.
An Instagram spokesperson apologized and told The Guardian that "We are sorry this happened — it's not the experience we want someone to have. This notification post was surfaced as part of an effort to encourage engagement on Instagram. Posts are generally received by a small percentage of a person's Facebook friends. In May , The Washington Post published a report detailing a "black market" of unlicensed employment agents luring migrant workers from Africa and Asia into indentured servitude as maids in Persian Gulf countries, and using Instagram posts containing their personal information including in some cases, passport numbers to market them.
Instagram deleted accounts that had been reported by the Post , and a spokesperson stated that Instagram took this activity "extremely seriously", disabled accounts found by the Post to be engaging in these activities, and was continuing to work on systems to automatically detect and disable accounts engaging in human exploitation. Instagram has been the subject of criticism due to users publishing images of drugs they are selling on the platform. In , the BBC discovered that users, mostly located in the United States, were posting images of drugs they were selling, attaching specific hashtags, and then completing transactions via instant messaging applications such as WhatsApp.
Corresponding hashtags have been blocked as part of the company's response and a spokesperson engaged with the BBC explained:  . Instagram has a clear set of rules about what is and isn't allowed on the site. We encourage people who come across illegal or inappropriate content to report it to us using the built-in reporting tools next to every photo, video or comment, so we can take action. People can't buy things on Instagram, we are simply a place where people share photos and videos.
However, new incidents of illegal drug trade have occurred in the aftermath of the revelation, with Facebook, Inc. In , Facebook announced that influencers are no longer able to post any vape , tobacco products, and weapons promotions on Facebook and Instagram. In October , Instagram deleted the account of Canadian photographer Petra Collins after she posted a photo of herself in which a very small area of pubic hair was visible above the top of her bikini bottom.
Collins claimed that the account deletion was unfounded because it broke none of Instagram's terms and conditions. You can indeed find more sexually suggestive photos on the site than Collins', where women show the side of "femininity" the world is "used to" seeing and accepting. Similar incidents occurred in January , when Instagram deleted Australian fashion agency Sticks and Stones Agency's account because of a photograph including pubic hair sticking out of bikini bottoms,  and March , when artist and poet Rupi Kaur 's photos of menstrual blood on clothing were removed, prompting a rallying post on her Facebook and Tumblr accounts with the text "We will not be censored", gaining over 11, shares.
The incidents have led to a FreetheNipple campaign, aimed at challenging Instagram's removal of photos displaying women's nipples. However, this statement has also been called into question due to other apps with more explicit content allowed on the store, the lack of consequences for men exposing their bodies on Instagram, and for inconsistent treatment of what constitutes inappropriate exposure of the female body.
On January 11, , Instagram and its parent company Facebook, Inc. On October 30, , Instagram temporarily removed the "recent" tab on hashtag pages to prevent the spread of misinformation regarding the United States presidential election. Zuckerberg stated "We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. A few days after Facebook changed its name to Meta, the artist and technologist Thea-Mai Baumann has lost access to her metaverse Instagram handle.
Bauman tried to reclaim her access for a month, without success. Instagram has been blocked by China following the Hong Kong protests as many confrontations with police and incidents occurring during the protests were recorded and photographed. Hong Kong and Macau were not affected as they are part of special administrative regions of China. Turkey is also known for its strict Internet censorship and periodically blocks social media including Instagram.
A few days after a fire incident that happened in the Koryo Hotel in North Korea on June 11, , authorities began to block Instagram to prevent photos of the incident from being spread out. As of February , Instagram is one of the last freely available global social media sites in Iran. The Cuban government blocked access to several social media platforms, including Instagram, to curb the spread of information during the Cuban protests.
