Description

Social Media and Mental Health: A Comprehensive Review of Eating Disorders in Young Men and the Literature Gap is a literature review of how social networking sites (i.e., Snapchat) and mass media negatively impacts the incidence, risk, and symptoms of eating disorders and disordered eating in young men aged 18 to 27. The literature review begins with a general overview of eating disorders and disordered eating in the introduction section and of the literature and research gap that exists within the field will be discussed near the end of the section, presenting the research question, research gap, and the current need for this type of literature review. Methodology delves into how the literature search was conducted. Peer-Reviewed journals and databases were searched with specific criteria in order to limit the number of articles that were irrelevant to the search. After articles were searched and entered into an abstract matrix, 36 articles were chosen to be in the literature review. The role of social networking sites (SNS) and mass media in the impact of eating disorder risk, symptoms, and incidence in college-aged men will be explored via the articles, discussing the impact of body image, self-esteem, and drive for muscularity. The discussion section will explore the main themes in the articles covered for the review as well as go over the limitations of the current review. Implications for future research and clinical activities will be discussed in this section as well.
