Social Media & Self Image

Social media is a great way to contact celebrities and catch up with friends. And where else could you share pictures of your lunch, see a bunch of pictures featuring snakes wearing hats, or laugh along with the latest hilarious memes? But being a social media butterfly can also be very damaging for young people. Feeling like they need to keep up with the amazing lives of ‘beautiful’ people can put big pressure on their self-image, leading to some pretty serious consequences.

Learning outcomes:
  • Describe how social media can impact you negatively
  • Understand the difference between perception and reality
  • Explain how to prevent children from becoming negatively influenced by social media
