Recent studies of female college students in the United States ( U.S. ) shows , the more often they use Facebook , chances are they do not like the look itself .
" The study focused on women , especially female students , because they are under pressure to appear a certain way . To her they are also looking for a particular shape . Pressure that comes from the image of media and interaction with peers , " said the lecturer at the University of Strathclyde , UK , Petya Eckler , as reported by Live Science page .
Eckler said , that the researchers wanted to find out if Facebook put pressure on women to look good .
The researchers conducted a survey of 881 female students , with an average age of 24 years , asked about the use of Facebook , their view of the shape of the body , and exercise and eating habits .
Approximately 86 percent of female students surveyed wanted the weight down , this figure is the highest compared to 61 percent of U.S. women who want to lost weight in a national survey cited in the study .
The result according to researchers , the Facebook social media affects the way women view their own body shape and how often compare it with their friends .
The more often a woman playing up , they will be more likely to say that they have given much attention to their physical appearance .
Previous research shows that women in the age range of female students themselves will cancel mark on photos ( untag ) if they do not like their appearance in the photo .
The researchers concluded that there was no link between the amount of time spent playing up the risk of a woman having an eating disorder .
However , Facebook may have further consequences on the female body photo , the researchers say .
" Photos poor body often result in a sense of shame about certain parts of one's body , " said Eckler .
