Teens and moms in particular suffer

When it comes to which groups fall the most victim to the comparison mentality, and who are the most vulnerable to having social media content influence their feelings of self-worth, Hussain said teens and moms are greatly at risk. “There are mothers who feel as if they aren’t doing enough, they aren’t as composed as the mom’s online, or I have women who don’t feel like they compare to the other women that they see with the way they look and feel,” she says. “Also, especially in the teenage population, there is more competition and bullying happen as social media has become a source of their wellbeing and what they rely on to remain connected. This is unhealthy and detrimental to the way they view themselves.”
