Do social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat give women an inflated sense of self-worth?

    Very attractive women perhaps. But these are vastly outnumbered by the millions who find these platforms deflating as they're so often criticized. More teens develop stigmas about themselves from social media use than do a handful of "models" get any ego satisfaction out of it.

    No, they already have an inflated sense of self-worth. Then, they gravitate toward these social media sites, thinking that ALL men want to see their bodies and faces. Then they post stupid pics wearing yoga pants and duck face lip kissy faces.

    Probably the opposite.

    Because "Beauty" is the only thing they can bring in the table for this Modern Era.

    Well, women are naturally insecure so there’s a reason most Instagram models are female. Men’s confidence comes from being productive.

      Beauty eventually fades over time. What’s on the inside truly matters in the long run.

    Maybe because women tend to have "yes people" on their friends lists who never criticize them.

    Did you mean "do they destroy women's self-esteem and sense of self-worth by making it all about fake looks"? Yes, yes they do.

    I believe it fools them into thinking they are more important than they are. Probably self-worth is tied in there somewhere too. Because no one else really cares.

    Yes, social media is not good.

    No, instagram and things like that are actually more likely to lower self esteem and cause anxiety/depression than anything since you're always comparing yourself and everything is fake and filtered. It's probably the number one source of women's insecurities in the modern world

      ^^ That’s because men don’t get compliments on looks very often, we get complimented a lot for our achievements. Conversely, a woman will receive a lot of compliments on her looks while never achieving anything of significance.
