In an interview with CNN’s Union Country, Nick Clegg, Vice President of the company’s global affairs, On Sunday he said Facebook is launching three new ways to help address the plight of at-risk youth on Instagram. The company allows adults to monitor the activities of their teens online if they choose to do so, “influencing” users who are looking for more harmful content on various sites, and encouraging them young people “breathing” from Instagram.
The dimensions were floating like possible ideas and answers Instagram head post Adam Mosseri in late September when he announced that the company was in existence to stop work on a program for children under the age of 13. Clegg’s announcement on the Sabbath confirms that the process is now part of Facebook’s ongoing campaign.
“We can’t change our personality,” Clegg said. “You always compare yourself to others, especially those who have only opportunities, but all we can do is change our business, which is what we do.”
In an interview, Clegg also tried to portray Facebook’s problem as a challenge that people should face and repeat what the company says Instagram is good for “many” young people who use it and suffer from insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
However, Clegg’s comments are very different from a destructive report published by the Wall Street Journal, covering its history lighting internal documents provided by Haugen. In the documents, researchers inside Facebook said the company had increased its image problems to 1 in 3 girls it viewed.
“Teens criticize Instagram for the amount of stress and frustration,” the researchers said looking inside. “This did not happen and it did not change in all groups.”
A report found that 13% of British users and 6% of American users who have experienced suicidal thoughts followed suicidal ideation on Instagram, the newspaper reported. Facebook he argued as the show described.
Responding to Haugen’s claim that Facebook has put a premium on the positive attitudes of young people on its platform, Clegg highlighted the company’s $ 13 billion investment in security, which is more than any other Twitter revenue over the past four years. He added that the company has 40,000 or more employees doubling the number of employees on Capitol Hill, who work on these projects.
“Like I say, we can’t afford to have a friend’s legacy make everyone’s life perfect. All we can do is improve our business so that our products are safe and fun to use,” Clegg said.
While all of this sounds pretty cool, once you see that Instagram is a storehouse of false alarms regardless of all the Facebook money and all the people who work to be safe, the only way to stay is to disbelieve. Unbelieving that despite all these things, Facebook is still doing well in making our very young and most vulnerable children feel sorry for themselves.
