Facebook Users Want To Look Good

A recent study in Britain illustrates that Facebook users are more concerned about their physical appearance in photos and less about their intelligence. This is an issue that I am always talking about on my Facebook status updates and my Tweets on my Twitter account. I am always asking much of the British or Newcastle female gender why they can’t take a photo without showing much of their naked body. Many Facebook or Twitter users I have come across can’t take a photo without showing their legs, chest or stomach.

Many would agree that much of the Facebook and Twitter users in Britain are careless and do whatever they want without any limits, self-respect or personal moral. In the study 56 per cent of the 4,374 people admitted they’re more concerned about their physical appearance in photos on social network and not their intelligence. Those in other European countries and the Middle East indicate in the study that they care more for intelligence and how they are perceived.

It clearly indicates from the study that British people are not concerned about how they are perceived from intelligence but what perception they portray from photos. Many of the users photos do be perceived as being ‘careless’, ‘spoilt’, ‘no morals’ and much more. The issue is that many other countries in Europe and East are improving their intelligence and over-taking Britain as manufacturers, designers, constructers, research and etc.

This recent study is showing us that much of the British people are insecure about themselves and trying to create a mask to hide who we really are through lying to others. The study indicates that only 34 per cent of men in Britain admitted to lying online to cover up their insecurities but 45 per cent of women were doing the same.

The difference is of course very clear and tells us that we do not have much self-respect or morals that we stick to. Many of the women upload photos of them doing some sort of ‘sexy pose’ to seek attention from the men and receive numerous comments and likes. That is a major problem because women are relying on that to be satisfied with their appearance and are attracting the wrong attention at the wrong time from men who perceive them as ‘easy-to-get’.

Women have no one to blame but themselves if they are being treated as a piece of meat or ‘easy-to-get’ by men from the interactions they are receiving. Women create that perception online and then men perceive them as being who they are because of their online lying to cover up the insecurities. Many of the women are having difficulties finding a decent relationship because of how men are treating them at the present. This causes women to not trust any genuine decent men because of bad experience with those who only wanted them for their physical appearance.

The study also found that 89 per cent of users believe that parents should take a bigger hand in this and teach their children better online etiquette. This suggestion does make me laugh because this is not possible in this modern British society with very low standard morals but Britain was not always like this. Back in the day if you have watched any documenteries British men were gentlemen and women were polite and respected their own body.

If today someone who was a man or women who confronted another man or women about being more decent in their appearance then they would be offended and kick-off about it in a violent manner. Many of the places I have seen and been to in the Asian part of the world have some set of morals and self-respect, example in my family we don’t want to be perceived as people with no respect. In Muslim or Pakistani society we have great self-respect and ensure we do nothing to make our family members (e.g. parents) feel/be ashamed in the Asian/Muslim community. If some British people set some for themselves like some of the cultures around the world have then there wouldn’t’ be this problem.

I only hope that this changes because I prefer to be in the company of someone who is concerned about their intelligence and not appearance. Someone who is only concerned about their appearance does not have much to talk about that is interesting except themselves and majority of it can be lies to cover up insecurities. Think about this study and what I have said, visit some of your social networking accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and etc) and have a look at what you see.

You will notice that many of the women young or old take a lot of their photos with their legs exposed with very little shorts/skirts, chest and stomach exposed while doing a ‘sexy pose’ by bending one leg and pushing in the stomach.

This in human nature usually is done to attract men because men are attracted to women showing their sensitive parts and the hour glass figure via the exposed stomach and back. It’s a signal to men that she would be suitable to have children with, human instinct which men have and can’t avoid.

So all I will say is STOP it British women and show off your intelligence and not your insecurities through body exposure. It will only get you the wrong attention and then you will get used for just pleasure by random men until you are a pregnant and unwanted for not having the appearance anymore or the intelligence.

Marketing Strategy (Essay Ideas – Problem)

After thoroughly searching many of the Journal websites that the University of Sunderland provides to its students for free I hit a major problem. There are no journals on a particular product line from any alcohol companies; Smirnoff is not even recognised on the Emerald site. However there are reports that I can download which are related to social responsibility and how it is affecting young people. I have downloaded many journals as I will need them for the later stages of my Marketing Strategy Essay Report.

Will have to report to my tutor and ask her if I could use the Financial Times or any other website if I am unable to collect information. Not too worried as I know I will continue investigating the internet and official reports to find a suitable product line for my essay, obviously I will not share any information on where I found those reports but I will blog my progress.


Market Strategy Updated (May 2011)

If it is difficult to find any journals then it is best a PDF is downloaded by Googling the companies name. For example Diageo always has annual reports published which illustrate the market share of each product and compares itself to its competitors.

If anymore help is needed then just leave a comment.

Marketing Strategy (Essay Ideas)

I feel I need to decide which alcohol product line I need to research and use for my assignment which is due in 11th December 2010. First week of University and already am having to worry about an assignment. Its not good when you’re the type of person who can’t sleep until you have some basic research carried out straight away. Currently I think I might go for a Bacardi product which will be easy to locate in the library journal. A large company is a obvious choice because there will be many articles about the product and any comparisons that have been made by other organisations will help me understand the current market. I see it as a problem because it means someone has researched the product and am only collecting different information to create my own report, would be nice to do a small product line but I will not be able to reference them to any articles which mean less marks.

Hopefully by the weekend I will have researched something and decided on which product I will further investigate. I will be posting throughout my investigation. Be free to leave comments on what you think throughout this research.


Finished this assignment and it was good. I suggest starting your work as early as possible when it involves any strategy/plan or report regarding Marketing. Marketing is done through thorough research and if you need to create a strategy/plan or report then you need to carry out research, research material that is accumulated over a period of time.
