According to senior researcher at University of West of England's Centre for Appearance Research, Dr. Phillippa Diedrichs, stated that "The more time spent on Facebook, the more likely people are to self-objectify themselves.” This is important because as people of any age spend time on a media platform they start to second guess themselves on how they are supposed to look like. Therefore, there is just not one type of body or person that everyone is supposed to have or look like because everyone is different and beautiful in their own way. With social media being a huge deal they can feel self-conscious about themselves. In addition, stated by Roxby “about 60% of the public feels ashamed on how they feel and aren’t comfortable with themselves.” This shows that with all the toxicity and negativity out on the web, young people are becoming more and more uncertain about their appearance. With all the social content being fairly new, it can be a very excellent influence for young people but once when someone starts to contradict another person that individual can start feeling ambiguity about
The way in which people naturally choose to use social media seems to be the key differentiating factor for narcissistic behavior. Narcissists tend to use social media to gain followers through self-promotion via selfies and body images. In contrast, non-narcissists tend to use social media to share authentic moments with close friends, rather than a following.

When it finally starts to leave people feeling insecure, or suicidal, that is when social media has done its part and should be limited. The media, as it grows, has affected so many people in so many different ways, For example, the Make-A-Wish Foundation that helps those kids who struggle have a dream come true. But sadly, that is not enough to make social media a good thing, still so much corruption and lies wander in the media. Social media has left a major mark on the world, maybe not necessarily a good one, but it sure is there. Back in 1997 when it was invented, surely they did not plan for it to become so popular and at the same time evil.
