Instagram isn’t the problem, you are

Forgive the click-baity title for just a minute and hear me out. I responded to Molly Forbes‘ tweet earlier today (which admittedly lacked context, so I was making a massive assumption on its intent)… Remember a world without Instagram? — Molly Forbes (@mollyjforbes) March 18, 2019 …with the words “Sometimes I feel like I’m the… read more →
