What Parents Need to Know about Social Pressures Linked To ‘Likes’

Published 28th August 2019

A free online safety guide on social pressures linked to 'Likes'.

‘Likes’ are a simple way for users to show that they approve of a post on social media. This could be anything from photos and videos to status updates and comments. The feature is widely used on several social media platforms and is particularly popular on Instagram and Facebook. It is often used by children to measure the success of their social media posts and gauge opinion about them. However, it can also bring a number of social pressures, particularly if users start to question their own levels of popularity.

In this guide, you'll find tips avoiding potential risks such as damage to self-esteem, addiction and competitiveness.
