Abstract

Selfie, a combination of peer norms and presentation of beauty ideals, is a a new phenomenon that is getting increasingly popular among teenage girls. It is believed to increase young girls' self-objectification. This study serves as an initial work to delve into how selfies drive peer norms to affect girls’ self-objectification. About 300 young girls will be surveyed. The findings of this study expand the understandings of normative influence and selfobjectification. Practically, this study sheds light on the severe societal phenomenon of teenage girls’ selfobjectification, and demonstrates how online social behavior affects adolescents’ explorations of self-concept.
