The switch to Instagram allows kids to escape the ever-watchful eye of parents and other adults like school administrators or police. “When you think Facebook, you think, your grandma and mom are on that,” says Jason, who is also 18. “They’re probably following you. Insta is different.”
I get the feeling that Facebook is becoming the network that your parents use. For some strange reason Instagram seems to appeal to everyone. Much like Twitter it does not focus on friends and more like minded people, it builds echo chambers and not networks you feel forced into.
