Abstract [sv]

Studien har syftat till att undersöka om det fanns ett samband mellan individers självkänsla och sociala medier i relation till ålder. Studien sökte även besvara om individer sökte bekräftelse genom sociala medier. Dessutom undersöktes om det fanns en korrelation mellan aktivitet och ålder på sociala medier. Sociala medier definierades i samband med denna studie till Instagram och Facebook. Data samlades in genom en kvantitativ enkätundersökning. Självkänsla mättes genom Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES). Insamlad data hanterades i SPSS och analyserades genom korrelationer och mellangrupps-ANOVA. Det fanns en signifikant skillnad i självkänsla mellan grupperna yngre och äldre. Det påvisades inget signifikant samband mellan självkänsla och aktivitet på sociala medier. Det fanns en signifikant negativ korrelation mellan ålder och behovet av bekräftelse. En slutsats från denna uppsats är att unga tycks söka bekräftelse via sociala medier men att de inte tycks erhålla någon högre självkänsla genom sin närvaro i sociala medier.

Abstract [en]

The study aims to investigate whether there was a connection between individuals' self-esteem and social media in relation to age. The study also sought to answer whether individuals sought confirmation through social media. In addition, it was examined whether there was a correlation between activity and age on social media. Social media was defined in connection with this study for Instagram and Facebook. Data was collected through a quantitative survey. Self-esteem was measured by Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES). Collected data was handled in SPSS and analyzed by correlations and intergroup ANOVA. There was a significant difference in self-esteem between the groups younger and older. There was no significant correlation between self-esteem and activity on social media. There was a significant negative correlation between age and need for confirmation. One conclusion from this study is that young people seem to seek confirmation via social media but that they do not seem to receive any higher self-esteem through their presence in social media.
