Glamour Issues Image Survey

(Metro) A new survey finds that a woman's body image is more influenced by her Facebook feed than fashion magazines. 

Conducted by "Glamour," the magazine surveyed women between ages 18 to 40.  Sixty-four percent of respondents say looking at their peers on social media sites leave them feeling unhappy with their own bodies.

That beats the 54 percent who say flipping through a magazine filled with models and actresses poorly affects how they feel about the way they look.

Struggles with body image seem to affect women on a daily basis.

A surprising 80 percent of the total respondents say simply catching a glimpse of themselves in the mirror makes them feel down.
