Tell us: how has Instagram affected young people’s body image?

Newly revealed secret internal research by Facebook has found that its Instagram app makes its younger users, particularly teenage girls, feel worse about their bodies.

We would like to hear from parents about how Instagram has affected their children’s body image and mental health.

We’d also like to hear from young people who are over the age of 18 about this issue. If you’re under 18, please ensure that a parent or guardian responds on your behalf.
