The method used in this study is qualitative with interview techniques. The subject of this study comprises twenty Instagram users. From 20 subjects, various results were obtained, such as the benefits of Instagram to improve one’s psychological well-being and the disadvantages of Instagram that affect the condition of one’s psychological well-being. This research is also inspired by previous findings from several journal articles.
