To combat the issue of triggering content or ‘fake news’ Facebook could implement a feature that would label a post if it included misleading or incorrect information, this would then help to warn users of false information and other deceptive content and ensure that the user is fully aware that the content of the post could be misleading.
To ensure that a user does not come across content that could be harmful to their mental health, applications like Instagram and Facebook should implement a setting that gives the user the ability to filter out certain words, phrases or hashtags that could be triggering to their mental state. The user could then choose how often they want to review the filter and could add or remove words at any point.
When in a low state a user may not want to see certain content on their Instagram feed as it may intensify their low mood. The ‘Low Mood’ feature filters out specific content and allows the user to see a stripped back version of their normal feed. The settings would allow the user to select which users they would want to see posts from and would let them filter out any specific content that could be triggering to them.
