Instagram is one of the most popular social media services among young people in Germany. With our new quiz, young people can check how well they know about the platform. How do you recognize advertising? How do you protect yourself from harassment? And what's the blue tick all about? To go with this, a revised edition of our long-out-of-print Instagram flyer is now available to order again.

According to the JIM Study 2022, Instagram is the most important social media platform for young people - ahead of competitors TikTok and Snapchat. Instagram is known primarily for its focus on aesthetic photos and videos. But Instagram is also repeatedly criticized. For example, because unrealistic body images are sometimes propagated on the platform. In addition, there is the problematic content that is also known from other platforms. This includes, for example, hate speech, cyberbullying and cybergrooming.
