Sammanfattning

Denna kvalitativa studie syftade till att undersöka hur unga tjejer upplevde och reflekterade över hälsotrend-och fitnessbilder på sociala medier samt hur detta påverkade deras självbild. Fokus för studien var att se hur kommunikation via bilder och jämförelse med andra individer på sociala medier påverkade individens självbild och kroppsuppfattning. Två fokusgruppsintervjuer med totalt åtta tjejer i åldern 20-30 genomfördes. Insamlad data analyserades utifrån symbolisk interaktionism där kommunikation är av betydande roll för en individs utvecklande av självet. Resultatet av studien visade att hälso-och fitnessbilder på sociala medier påverkade respondenterna både positivt genom motivation samt strävan efter ett hälsosammare liv, men också negativt i det hänseende att respondenterna kände sig misslyckade vid jämförelse med andra vilket påverkade deras självbild och kroppsuppfattning negativt. Det framkom också av resultatet att det fanns negativa attityder mot individer som låg långt ifrån dagens kroppsideal och som lever ohälsosamt.
