Health risks in use of social media among girls : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Inledning: Sociala medier har utvecklats och skapar en ny arena för integration. Den psykiska ohälsan ökar hos unga flickor tycks påverkas av sociala medier. Syftet med litteraturöversikten var att undersöka några hälsorisker flickor i åldern 11 till 17 år födda efter 1993 har utsatts för via sociala medier. Metod: Tio originalartiklar publicerade de senaste fem åren har sökts fram via PubMed. Relevanta artiklar har granskats och tematiserats utifrån hälsorisker vilka återfinns i litteraturöversikten. Resultat: Litteraturöversikten undersökte tidigare forskning kring hälsorisker hos unga flickor födda efter 1993 vid användning av sociala medier. Flickor tenderar att bli mer påverkade av kommentarer och påverkas under längre tid vilket kan leda till depression och ångest. Självskadebeteende och självmordsbenägenheter är direkt kopplade till depression. Självförtroendet påverkas av kommentarer på sociala medier. Flickor tenderar i högre grad att drabbas av psykosomatiska besvär till följd av användning av sociala medier. Sociala medier kan öka känslan av rädsla och otrygghet. Flickornas kroppsbild påverkas via sociala medier vilket i förlängningen kan leda till ätstörningar. Diskussion: Användandet av sociala medier kan ses som hälsorisk hos unga flickor. Likväl kan påverkan av sociala medier ses som enbart utlösande faktor för andra bakomliggande orsaker. Sociala medier kan även ge hälsovinster.

Girls tend to be more affected by the comments and are affected over time which can lead to depression and anxiety. Self-harm and suicidal tendencies are directly linked to depression. Self-confidence is affected by comments on social media. Girls tend increasingly to suffer from psychosomatic disorders due to use of social media. Social media can increase the feeling of fear and insecurity. The girls' body image is influenced by social media, which ultimately can lead to eating disorders. Discussion: The use of social media can be seen as a health risk in young girls. Nevertheless, the impact of social media is seen as on of the triggers for other underlying causes.
