Instagram has launched a tool to help prevent suicide. “Instagram rolled out an update that introduces a new tool aimed to prevent suicide by providing a means for followers to reach out to users who appear to be troubled based on their posts. Aside from being a source of information and entertainment, the social media provided people with an avenue to express themselves to the world. It provided a means for them to share their happiness and success as well as messages or statuses — albeit vague and cryptic ones — that reveal what they truly feel.”
