There is an ongoing conversation about how every day social media usage affects personal, community, and societal well-being, as well as the effect of those who use social media to compromise the safety and beliefs of others.

To combat this, they have focused on technology and people to remove bad content and behavior from their services. While they do a lot to understand these problematic issues, the effectiveness of these efforts relies strongly on their engagement with foundational research and partnerships with social scientists.

Award recipients will be invited to a workshop in Menlo Park, California to discuss their findings/insights with the Instagram Team in 2020. Please budget travel for one PI to attend as a part of the proposed project budget.
