Abstract/Description

Body image has become a problem among people of all ages due to social media advertisements depicting people to look a certain way. This often leads to risk factors such as eating disorders, depression, or body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) which is a disorder characterized persistent and intrusive preoccupations with an imaged or slight defect of one’s appearance. The purpose of this study is to see whether a social media advertisement influences a persons perception of looking a certain way after answering a questionnaire about body image.
