Facebook-owned Instagram has fixed a glitch that allowed people post extra-long images onto their feeds.

The photo-sharing app has a fixed size for pictures and a fixed pattern about how they appear on your screen but because of the bug, Instagram could not resize the images.


These were not visible to all the users around the globe but only in the iOS version of the app.

Android users were not able to reproduce this glitch in the app. However, they could post normal-sized images after clicking them but their feed did show some extra-long pictures clicked by the iPhone users on the app.

People with moderate or greater symptoms of depression were more likely to believe at least 1 of 4 false statements about Covid-19 vaccines.

People suffering from depression are more likely to believe vaccine-related misinformation, according to a new study. The study found that people with moderate or greater symptoms of depression were more likely to believe at least 1 of 4 false statements about Covid-19 vaccines.

Those who believed the statements to be true were half as likely to be vaccinated, the study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, indicated. 'It is clear the pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the mental health of Americans, especially young people," said researcher Katherine Ognyanova from Rutgers University, the US.
