PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Obsessed with sharing photos of you and your significant other?
According to a new study, all of those selfies could damage your relationship.
For the study, researchers had 420 Instagram users complete an online survey questionnaire.
Results of the survey indicated that body image satisfaction was sequentially associated with increased Instagram selfie posting and Instagram-related conflict.
Researchers say this relates to increased negative romantic relationship outcomes.
“These findings suggest that when Instagram users promote their body image satisfaction in the form of Instagram selfie posts, risk of Instagram-related conflict and negative romantic relationship outcomes might ensue.”
