Can’t look at selfies the same way anymore… It turns out what you post on Instagram can reveal whether you’re depressed.
According to High Snob Society, IG users who are suffering from depression tend to post pictures of lone faces in addition to bluer, darker and grayer pictures.
Even the type of filters you use can determine your emotional state! People generally suffering from depression don’t use too many filters, but when they do they choose “Inkwell” which is a black and white filter. Instagram users who don’t have depression tend to use the “Valencia” filter which is a sun tinted filter.
Admittedly, I’ve posted bluer and darker pictures in the past thinking I’m being more “artistic” in my posts. However, maybe unconsciously I was going through something. I’m definitely going to pay more attention next time I want to post a picture!
