Understanding the correlation between social media and self-image is vital in today’s day and age, especially considering the pressure that is put on college students to display a picture-perfect life on their social media platforms. Data was gathered by having 100 different women attending Salisbury University complete an online survey, and by studying research by professionals in this field. The social media usage of the subjects was collected, and participants were also asked how social media has impacted their self-image as well as their friend’s self-images. Subject selection was restricted to undergraduate female students currently attending Salisbury University. All subjects were at least 18 years of age and no personal identifiers were attached to the information gathered. From the results of this study, it is evident that there is a correlation between social media and negative impact on a person’s self-image, although this relationship between social media and self-image is not a perfect correlation.
