What do people share from quarantine?

Nikjoo, Adel; Shabani, Bardia; Hernández-Lara, Ana B.
Abstract:
The COVID-19 pandemic, and its consequent self-isolation, has imposed changes on various aspects of people's lifestyle. The present study aims at exploring the effect of these lifestyle changes on the content people share on their social media pages. To do so, we analysed Instagram posts containing the hashtag #viewfromquarantine which is promoted by the ‘National Geographic’ on a global scale. Adaptation to the new lifestyle, self-expression, and social issues were identified as the main issues shared by people during this time of pandemic.
