The theme of this paper has its roots in social media and mental health. Many people are using social media in their daily life. By doing so they might not question or noticing how it affects one’s mental health and wellbeing. As a group of students, we are concerned about the unawareness and potential consequences there is regarding social media providing a basis for a bad mental state.
The intention of this paper is to examine how a social media platform such as Instagram affects young people’s self-worth and identity. Furthermore, it is to examine if and how a critical design may foster reflections in the individual experiencing this design. The reflections should preferably be related to how this individual think about his or her own use of Instagram, and thus how Instagram influences the user’s mental wellbeing. This with the intention of creating digital awareness for the individual.
