STARVING

FOR LIKES
JOANNE COUGHLIN WALSH

ant to look 15 pounds thinner? Improve your smile or your complexion?
Remove blemishes from your face? h Well, there are apps for that. h In
fact, the drive for the perfect selfie those self-posed photographs that
people take of themselves and post everywhere on social media has
psychologists and plastic surgeons concerned about whether social
media is amplifying the insecurities that teens have about their appearance and body
image. h Selfies also are morphing from the do-it-yourself variety into those shot by
professional photographers after the person is prettified by professional makeup
artists and hair stylists.
