Full Video from Dove’s #SMWNYC Event: Social Media’s Impact on Confidence and Self-Esteem
In this panel at #SMWNYC, five incredible leaders in business and culture discussed how technology is being used to positively and negatively influence self-esteem and body image online, and what the future holds for this issue.
Women and girls used to take cues about beauty as they flipped through the pages of magazines, but in 2016, page turning has been replaced with a mouse click, a double tap, or a swipe. Ideas and opinions about body image are now being shared every second through social media, but they are often negative and judgmental.
Dove has been at the forefront of interpreting how and why social media effects the self-esteem and confidence of women and girls. The brand is constantly searching for ways to inspire women to develop a positive relationship with beauty, and have identified social media as the metaphorical frontline for its efforts.
In this panel at Social Media Week in New York, five incredible leaders in business, culture, lifestyle, and technology discussed how technology is being used to positively and negatively influence self-esteem and body image online, and what the future holds for this issue.

- Tiffany Dufu (Chief Leadership Officer, Levo)
