The Impact of Social Media Use on Social Comparison and Body Images of Young Adult Males.
The Impact of Social Media Use on Social Comparison and Body Images of Young Adult Males. As a graduate student in the School of Behavioral Sciences (Community Care and Counseling) at Liberty University, I am conducting research as part of the requirements for a Doctor of Education Degree. The purpose of this study is to address the gap in the literature that exists with young males and investigate the possible relationship between social media use and body image concerns as it pertains to this population.
Given that this particular group is underrepresented within past and current research studies, and more studies have confirmed that males do in fact struggle with body image, this study will glean insight and valuable information related to body image, social media use, and social influence. Through this study I am hoping to answer two specific research questions. First, is the use of social media, number of friends/followers, and time spent on social media related to body image dissatisfaction among young adult males? Second, does social comparison moderate (influence the magnitude of) the relationship between social media use and body image concerns among young adult males? I am writing to invite you to participate in my study.
If you are a male between the ages of 18 and 20, currently an undergraduate student, use social media, and are willing to participate, you will be asked to complete three anonymous surveys. It should take approximately 15-20 minutes for you to complete the surveys. Your participation will be completely anonymous, and no personal, identifying information will be collected.
A consent document is provided as the first page you will see after you click on the survey link. The consent document contains additional information about my research. Please click on the survey link at the end of the consent information to indicate that you have read the consent information and would like to take part in the survey.
If you choose to participate, you may voluntarily enter your name into a drawing for an Amazon gift card upon completion of the survey. There will be five separate drawings for a $10 gift card. In order to allow for participant anonymity, you may send me a separate email after you have completed and submitted the survey, asking to be entered into the drawing. While email addresses will be necessary in order to participate in the drawing, they will not be linked to participants’ identities.

It should take approximately 45 minutes for you to complete the survey and approximately 1 hour, if chosen, for you to complete the follow-up interview. Your participation in the survey will be anonymous, and no personal information will be collected unless you decide to participate in an interview. Your name and email address will be requested only if you are willing to participate in an interview, but the information from the survey and interview will remain confidential.
