Social media may be negatively affecting our body image
Today’s Video of the Day from Eurekalert describes a link that has been found between social media and poor body image.
Researchers at York University have discovered that active engagement on social media can have a negative impact on the self-confidence of users.
More specifically, people feel worse about their own appearance after viewing the social media pages of individuals they perceive as being more attractive than themselves.
The research is published in the journal Body Image.
