Instagram for kids?

Social media and students.
I've had some questions recently about Instagram and students - what should a teacher or parent be teaching kids about this platform? It's all good fun, but how does one avoid the problems that can arise? Kids love the ability to play with images (and filters and overlays) and I've seen students as young as 11 with accounts. Here are some pointers and guides to peruse on the subject.
