#OwnYourFeed: YoungMinds and O2 have partnered to launch the campaign that encourage young people to take control of their online feeds and make social media a positive place to be.
Anyone can take part in the campaign by following along with the weekly themes on Instagram:
- Week 1: Know your feed
Think about the content you see on your social media, and how it makes you feel through an interactive quiz. Are you:
- The Negative Spiral Feed
- The Glam Sham Feed
- The Energy Drain
- The Real Deal Feed
- Week 2: Clean your feed
Think about what accounts you follow, and how these make you feel. Consider unfollowing or muting things that don’t support your mental health and wellbeing.
- Week 3: Find your crowd
Build positive networks of likeminded, supportive people on your social media feeds.
- Week 4: Say hey
Reach out to friends in a positive way through our 5 Day ‘Say Hey’ Challenge:
- Day 1: Tag a friend in something that will make them smile
- Day 2: Reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while
- Day 3: Tell a friend how much they mean to you
- Day 4: Thank the person who listens to you when you’re struggling
- Day 5: Share #OwnYourFeed with a friend
