Instagram Is The Best Social Media App
Start writing a post

Social media has been a growing sector for millennials. It has grown from being a concept to taking a good amount of people's time every day. With that being said, which social media is the best overall? In my opinion, I think that Instagram takes the win on this one. These are some of the reasons why it is the best.

Filters are on point


Have you seen the number of filters that Instagram provides? I think it is so wild to be able to choose from a great variety. I recently just counted how many filters there are — there are 24 filters — but you can always manage them to make them into your own.

Snapchat stories, who?


I was initially not a big fan of Instagram stories because I felt that it was a Snapchat thing, but now it is my favorite app to post stories in. The filters that are provided for the stories make them look more realistic and pretty. I am a very detailed person and I feel that it enhances them nicely.

A picture is worth a thousand words 


Unlike Twitter, Instagram thrives on visuals. It is a platform where its users can post pictures to showcase their lives or creativity.

It's easy to stalk your favorite celebrities 


The number of hours I have spent looking at Shawn Mendes is ridiculous. It is so easy to see what he's currently doing and what he's done from years ago. I find myself looking up pictures from years ago when he looks like a baby and at that point I know I have gone too far.

Who doesn't have one?


I honestly feel like the majority of people have an Instagram. It is a well known app that many users are familiar with.

It's a platform to be creative 


Instagram has become a great platform for up in coming photographers because it number to share their creations online. Since it is easy to communicate through the application, there is a high chance of a new photographer to find success in this platform.

The app makes it easy to be connected 


Using Instagram, you don't have to be with the person to see what they're doing. Instagram makes it easy to see what's going on other people's lives.

DMing friends is fun 


Instagram has a fun function that lets the user share posts through DMs. It is such a great function because friends can check out the original post.

These are just some of the reasons why Instagram is the best social media platform. Don't get me wrong, I still use Facebook and Snapchat because they are good platforms, but I definitely use Instagram much more.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
