How Instagram Use Impacts Body Image in Female College Students

The purpose of this study is to see if there is a measurable trend of Instagram use impacting the body image of participants. Female college students were surveyed and asked about their Instagram use and how they feel it affects their body image. Our anticipated findings are an increasingly negative body image with increased Instagram use. Other studies could be conducted on this topic by asking more in-depth questions or studying other online platforms.
