Sociala mediers betydelse för unga vuxnas förväntningar på sig själva

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialhögskolan

Sammanfattning: The purpose of the thesis was to gain a better understanding of how social media affects young adults’ expectations of themselves, their self-image, and how it in turn is perceived to affect their health. This was investigated using semi-structured interviews. The concepts of social mirroring and "Me" and "I" have been used to explain how we build identity through mirroring in others and how we can look at things from different perspectives. The results of the study show how important it is to learn how to manage emotions. I have learnt that parents and other adults have a big task to help young people learn what is realistic and what is not, but also that they need to be there and teach young people to deal with difficult things. The results also show that schooling is tough for many as they feel that there are high demands in school and that you need to get good grades in order to then be able to get a good job.
