Total of 100 participants took part in this research. Participants ranged in age from 18-25 (n= 67) and >26 (n=33). The research is a quantitative study that uses four questionnaires to attain information from participants. The questionnaires were The Facebook Intensity Scale, (Ellison, 2007), The Rosenberg Self – Esteem scale, SES (Rosenberg, 1965), The Body Esteem Scale (Franzoi & Shields, 1984) and The social comparison scale (Allan & Gilbert, 1995).
