The findings highlight the consuming concerns of young adults, around body image, loneliness and sense of self – all amplified by the pervasive presence of social media in almost every aspect of their daily life.   As well as this, one in four (25 per cent) 18–24-year-olds are unsatisfied with the way they look. A correlation between body image concerns and excessive time on social media is clearly demonstrated. Indeed, 70 per cent of people with poor mental health say they want stricter regulations on social media beauty filters.
