A lot of people suffer from the pressure social media can give you to look a certain way. There can be different ways to find your true self without feeling pressured into trying to fit into one crowd that is socially acceptable.

Society is telling us that it’s okay to do things to make us look like Instagram models or fitness models and that those bodies are appealing to society's eyes. This idea later goes into youth's mind creating goals that are unrealistic to achieve. This leads to teenagers such as myself click on advertising that say “How to lose 10 pounds in a week” or “Find the secret to lose that stubborn belly fat”. Once teenagers realize how it’s fake, it can lead them to fall into depression and develop eating disorders. Marketing promotes products and images that suits our appeal, leading us to desire these products and making us dependent on them. But not all teenagers desire the same thing and people that work in the marketing segment know that, so big companies such as Google, Yahoo and Bing track our data to understand what appeals to each individual to make you dependent on the products they want to sell to you the most.
