Description

There have been several studies viewing the effects of social media on self-esteem (Guinta, 2018; O’Keefe & Clarke-Pearson, 2011; Vogel, Rose, Roberts, & Eckles, 2014) .
However, there has been no to very limited research on the effects of the social media frame on self-esteem. The present study hypothesized participants in the frame condition would have lower self-esteem scores than those in the no frame condition. In addition, the present study is examining the effects of sex on self-esteem. Previous research to has led to the second hypothesis that females would have a lower self-esteem score in comparison to males (Bleidorn et al., 2016; Kearney-Cooke, 1999) . Participants were required to take a pre-self-esteem assessment, watch a Google Slides presentation, and take a post-self-esteem assessment. The results partially supported the original hypotheses. Result found no significance between frame and no frame groups. On the other hand, in support of the original hypothesis, females had a significantly lower self-esteem scores than males.
