Abstract

Social media is an amazing place to hangout, but at the same time this amazing space can be a reason
for mental issues and body image issues for young girls, as much as these platforms were designed to
share ideas, information and your creativity, it has turned into a battle field of who looks more
attractive and lean, the obsession to look slim has made females Anorexia. Extremely photoshopped
pictures of models, influencers , celebrities have put young girls into dilemma of thinking that they
are overweight and not beautiful. This madness needs to be stopped we need to teach our young
generation about self love and inclusivity. It is important that there be fair representation of women of
colour, different sizes and ethnicity on social media platform as well as in modelling world. Young
women should not feel a need to alter their bodies by unnecessary fasting and use of cosmetic
procedure, I am not against any plastic surgery I am against the impression that women are not
beautiful if they don’t have certain features or look a certain way. This review paper discuss the dark
side of Social media sites which leads to body image issues in young girls.
