To mark Safer Internet Day 2024, the Austrian Safer Internet Centre presented the results of a new youth study on "Beauty ideals on the internet". The study examines the effects of digital media use on young people's body-related self-image. To this end, 400 young people between 12 and 17 years old were questioned about their experiences, supplemented by four in-depth focus groups with 56 participating pupils.
