Society and Culture PIP: An investigation into social media and its contribution to a universal and stereotyped standard of beauty.
First of all, thank you so much for taking your time to fill in the survey! Any information you provide will remain anonymous and discarded once the research has been completed.

Some info on the survey:
As part of the HSC Society and Culture syllabus, I'm undertaking the Personal Interest Project where students undertake a research based on an area of interest. As an active user of social media platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat, I've always been exposed to images of what is considered an "ideal" beauty standard for both women and men as dictated by advertisements and influencers. As the popularity of such platforms increases exponentially so does issues of body image and self-esteem among society. Through this survey, I plan to collect information that can help me decode the extent of social media influence on users and potential actions that have been taken by the social media community to counterattack the unhealthy beauty standards that are being presented.
