Digital lives

Insta creeps

In the wake of the Coleen Rooney’s investigation, we discuss Instagram’s impact on our offline friendships

Insta creeps 13’25

In the wake of Coleen Rooney’s magnificent investigation of her friend, Rebekah Vardy, we discuss the shifting etiquette of digital friendships, in particular – how much you should admit you know about a friend’s life from their Instagram posts?

Tortoise editor Basia Cummings is joined by journalist Elle Hunt and Guardian columnist Hannah Jane Parkinson to plot out what’s allowed, and what definitely isn’t.
