How Instagram is looking after users in mind, body and spirit

To be sung to the tune of Diddy’s anthem: The B. The U. The S. The Y, I’m busy. Work is all too easy to blame, but it’s not the only reason I’m feeling a little ‘arghhh’. Even planning shopping trips and holidays has become stressful thanks to the list of jobs they create. Working […]
