TikTok has announced that they are rolling out a “well-being guide” in its Safety Center to educate users about potential negative mental health effects from using social media.

The guide encourages users to consider their content and the impact that what they are sharing might have. Additionally, the user needs to ask themselves if they are ready to share their experience with a wide audience and perhaps the repercussions that could follow if their post goes viral.

The new resource comes after a document was leaked about how Facebook, who owns Instagram, did research to determine how much harm Instagram poses for teenage girls.

Is anyone going to actually read this or will people just continue swiping? It’s the thought that counts!
