The massive use of image-based social networks changes traditional feed-back sources for individual body-image. Exploring the role of social-networks on identity formation, in this study we examined the relationship between the process of observing modified images on In-stagram, self-esteem and body di-morphism. Self-report measures were administered to 327 adolescents and young adults. Results indicate that both the process of observing modified images and the manipulation of one’s own image increase the dysmorphic symptoms. The re-sults suggest that being constantly exposed to manipulated photo-graphs can take the form of a new area of risk for the identity development of adolescents and emerging adults.
