Abstract In recent years, social media has played a huge role on what society deems attractive. The Internet has made it more convenient for consumers to buy products online that they would normally feel too embarrassed to buy in a store. There are many theories that have developed based off of today’s society’s mindset on what is deemed appropriate for how people should look. With people wanting to conform to this particular mindset, the Internet has made it possible to do so, while letting entrepreneurs reap the benefits.
