How social media manipulate teenagers to build an appealing figure

Parents are unaware of how social media can affect teenagers' body image. This is also true for most teenagers. We live in an age where every movie, series, TV commercial, magazine, and website presents beautiful people as ideals. Instagram is known for its perfectionists, including supermodels and girls made Photo shopped. Most teenagers believe that losing weight and looking more beautiful is the key to happiness and long-term success.

Teenage girls can suffer from the adverse effects of body photos on social media, especially when young. Research shows that young girls are more likely to choose thin characters for games than heavier ones. Girls turn ten and start a diet to become more attractive and slimmer. Social media has a significant impact on the minds of young girls, changing their perceptions of beauty and body image.

The impact of social media on pushing teenagers for getting the ideal figure

The media puts more pressure on young teens to be slim and beautiful, and social media influences teen body image in addition to traditional media. Teenagers' self-esteem depends on receiving affirmations from social media users. Many teens want their peers and social media followers to receive confirmation and affirmation. They eagerly await your feedback.

  Teenagers take the perfect photo for Instagram. Then they spend more time applying filters to make the image more appealing. They upload a photo to their account, and then wait for comments and likes. Positive feedback can increase your self-esteem. Teens can also be the subject of negative criticism and feedback from their peers if something goes wrong, leading to low self-esteem and loss of self-confidence. Cyberbullying can lead to body shame and is also known as shame.

Teenagers may feel pressure to look attractive, beautiful, and slim via social media. Several studies have shown that teens who come into contact with photos of overweight models and pictures of women with high-quality filters can suffer from low self-esteem. They also tend to eat less healthy foods to look like these models. Poor body image can lead to more severe health problems. Poor body image can teach some teenagers to develop an eating disorder. In others, it can cause anxiety and depression. The study found that adolescents who were unsatisfied with their bodies had more suicidal thoughts than others. You'd be surprised to know that bad body image affects girls and boys, and it can also affect teenage boys. Teenage boys can be fooled by superheroes and figurines of unrealistic body types. Most teenage boys start exercising and losing weight to look muscular and attractive. A poor body image can lead to serious mental health problems and eating disorders.
