Omaha teens mental health impacted by Instagram usage – WOWT

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A recent study conducted by Facebook shows that teen usage of Instagram can lead to insecurity and a negative focus on their physical appearance.Since the release of the study, Instagram says it’s looking for new ways to discourage users from browsing content that may negatively impact them.Teens in Omaha aren’t immune to these effects either, says CHI Health Mental Health Therapist Tim Hron.“What we’re seeing in our outpatient clinics, and to be honest in all of our treatment programs, we’re seeing increased depression, anxiety, it’s really effecting teens self-esteem, their confidence, their body image, how they view themselves,” said Hron.The study shows that teen girls are more impacted by social media usage than teen boys, and Hron says it’s likely because girls tend to be more sensitive and serious when it comes to their body image, but that it’s not necessarily their fault.“Because the images out there, our society socializes that girls have to look a certain way, and when you’re seeing filters that are making these images on social media almost seem perfect, that’s not real, but in a young girl’s mind, to them it is real,” said Hron.“And young people, they don’t always have…

After taking to Instagram to happily announce her engagement to boyfriend Sam Asghari over the weekend, Britney Spears’ account has been deleted. The sudden removal of her account comes after Spears re-shared an excerpt from an article titled “Infusing Education with Heart.”“I had to repost this so you can see the whole article!!!!! Growing up in a world where basically almost everything I did was controlled by someone else,” she wrote. “I hope this message gets to people who have been confused or manipulated by a system.” Spears concluded the since-deleted post by thanking the #FreeBritney movement for their long-standing support over her 13-year conservatorship, which could be coming to an end after her father Jamie filed a petition last week asking that the court consider ending it. Related StoriesSTORY CONTINUES BELOWThe matter has taken quite a turn in recent months, especially after the singer’s bombshell testimony in June where she detailed the alleged “abusive” measures being taken by her conservators to control every aspect of her personal life.  A source tells Page Six that it was Spears’ decision to take her account down. “She’s happy and in a great place,” the insider said, adding, “and silence can be a powerful thing and a powerful message.” Britney has reportedly chosen to remove herself from social media “in light of…

Instagram Is Shockingly Divided on These 'Sleeping Bag' Shoes – Yahoo

Are These Shoes Ugly, or Good, or So Ugly They're Good?Courtesy I rarely crowdsource my fashion decisions — usually, I have a very clear idea of what I want to wear and why, and I'm very discerning (and sometimes even a bit harsh) about what I find repulsive and what I find acceptable. Opening the floor to too many opinions ultimately leaves me feeling a bit flustered; like many of my choices in life, it's best if I just go full steam ahead with my instincts and mostly ignore people.Recently, though, I came across a shoe that was so aesthetically confounding, I couldn't decide if I liked it or not. It's the Teva ReEmber Moc Slip-Ons, a quilted slip-on shoe that's made from 100% recycled ripstop, rib knit, and microfiber. Though the ReEmber might sound like your standard indoor-outdoor comfy shoe, she's not like all the other girls: She has a Look with a Capital L, and I was about to learn she's the most controversial sole in town.Teva RE-EMBER MOC SLIPPERCourtesy Shop now: $75, zappos.comI first saw the shoes randomly browsing the Teva website for something comfortable to wear while walking my dogs. I noticed the ReEmber because of…

How to gain 150k Instagram followers in a year | Stuff.co.nz

OPINION: One of the most common questions I get asked when coaching clients is “How do I get more followers on social media?” and besides the very wrong, and completely pointless method of buying them, the answer is often: “With a lot of hard work.” Very occasionally you can get a lucky break, with a post or reel that gets shared by a big name brand, sending a flood of new followers your way. The key then is to keep them with content that continues to meet their needs.Plann/UnsplashBefore we start talking about how to get more followers, it’s really important to acknowledge that more followers doesn’t always mean more sales, or more success for your business. (File photo) As I’m not insta-famous (I’ve got around 1300 followers on Instagram), and I’ve never cracked the code on how to get huge follower growth, I was thrilled when Lucas O’Keefe agreed to come on my MAP IT marketing podcast and answer all my questions about how he has grown his account by over 150 thousand followers in a year. Before we start talking about how to get more followers, it’s really important to acknowledge that more followers doesn’t always mean more…
