3. The Dissertation

The moment I've been dreading since I started University.

In the past couple of weeks we have been asked to choose our topic for the dissertation that we are to write for our communications module. I've been looking into the mental health of people who have to view pictures to ensure that they adhere to community guidelines on social network sites. These people must see horrific images day in day out. I've also been looking at how social networks, Instagram especially, are influencing body image and mental health of its users. I had to make the decision on which one and decided upon the latter. I feel it's becoming a real issue amongst young people and would like to understand it more.
