Snap CEO Evan Spiegel claimed Instagram makes you feel ‘terrible’ and Snapchat doesn’t. But he can’t prove it and data suggests he’s wrong. (SNAP)

- Snap CEO Evan Spiegel recently said that Instagram made users feel “terrible” because they had to “compete for popularity.”
- Spiegel has yet to provide any proof to back up this claim, and current research suggests he is wrong.
- Snapchat does, however, seem to have a slightly better emotional impact on users than Instagram, according to multiple surveys.
- Assessing the impact of social-media apps on emotional well-being is complicated by factors like “active” versus “passive” use, and timeframe.
It’s no secret there’s bad blood between Snapchat and Facebook-owned Instagram.
