Maybe I’m the only one that thinks this way but I was shocked how filthy Instagram was when I logged in for the first time recently.. your thoughts?

The opening screen had this bra-less, curvy, long haired, young woman sexy dancing and beckoning the viewer to join her.... very provocative... I removed the app immediately.

I mean, dang.... felt like I’d logged into a porn site... what’s the world coming to... sexual provocation- everywhere??
It's shocking. People's teens are all over Instagram. I was just having lunch to day with the mother of a teen and her girl posts her photos on there and then her classmates come along and say cruel things about her, and then it doesn't stop there. Everyone piles on and takes a side. People she has to see at school. It's very nasty. You'd think kids would learn not to stick their necks out like that, but they're all seeking validation.

Personally, I refrain from all social media. TAM is my only online vice as it is a safety valve of sorts for me. It you find it offensive do not go there. I find liberal new sites offensive... therefore... I do not go there.

I went to Instagram to try and keep touch with a family member that seems to have left FB. Think I’ll jettison that plan. Those videos under search were just too dang seedy... don’t need those temptations or images wrecking my peace.... sounds like I need to avoid Twitter and Reddit too.... thanks everybody.

Yeah.... the poor kids. The internet is probably just wrecking them... everything instantly at their fingertips... but no self control or boundaries. Parents need to be ultra tech savvy and diligent.

The trouble is the kids all get together and solve any controls the parents put on them as a group. For instance when my friend removed her daughter's phone, another student provided her the community burner phone that they passed around to whoever had gotten grounded from their phone. They know how to adjust everything.

I don't have Instagram, but I'm aware that there is a lot of amateur pornography on there.

I guess a lot of people in the world are walking further away, from settling for being shamed for their nudity, sexual desires and enjoyment of the same.

I don’t post on IG. My account has 2 posts and they’re from other people.

I do like to follow guitar players, bands, some fighters, and a few people I know IRL. I do not get seedy content at all.

My guess would be the algorithm is serving you up content based on analytics.
