  • Ofcourse, people are mostly jealous of other people's success, happiness and achievements, and that's why instagram is here for, to post these three things.

  • If they aren't that confident in themselves to begin with, it can be demoralizing to see a guy with a six pack driving a Lamborghini with a super hot girlfriend and hundreds of thousands of people complimenting him... Or a skinny girl with big tits on a private beach being showered with guys calling her gorgeous etc. Jealousy is normal, but it can be very easy to spiral downwards looking at other people's success.

  • Obviously. Otherwise children wouldn't kill them selves after reading a bunch of shit online.

  • Yes - it causes people to compare what happens behind the scenes in their lives with the highlights of others'

  • I always see when my 'friends' leave me out and what I'm missing out on. Most importantly, It has caused many arguments between my girlfriend and I.

Yes, social media can create stress/insecurity within today's teens. This is shown through women and how they should look in a certain way and rising levels of “body dissatisfaction” – insecurity and low self-esteem about their appearance. Social media makes a women/girl believe she has to look in a certain way to impress the media.That will lead to anxiety and stress, let say as if a girl did not look in a "certain" way then she wll be judged about how her appearance is not good enough.As a result of that it will lead to insecurity and low self-esteem.
