Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of the study was to examine how young women aged between 18 and 24 experienced trainingselfies on social media. The study consisted of a qualitative research where a focus group discussion was used for the data collection. The criteria for participation was that the person involved either posted trainingselfies or looked at others. The invitation was sent out to five young women, four of which took part in the focus group discussion. Data was analyzed by using a latent content analysis. The results showed that self-esteem can be the basis for the person affected positively or negatively by a traningsselfie. The results showed that all participants had high self-esteem as well, was happy with themselves and therefore positively affected by trainingselfies. They felt that people with low self-esteem didn’t get the same positive affect. Participants also felt significant differences when it came to trainingselfies between boys and girls. They felt that the guys highlighted sweat and muscles while girls focused on that perfect look. The result showed that all participants had relative good self-esteem and felt pleased with themselves. They thought that overweight people who made a big lifestyle change were more inspiring than the already well-trained and lean people were.
