Social media is playing a bigger role in the lives of adolescents. However, institutes of education and adults are more focused on why you shouldn’t use these media for broaden your knowledge in these institutes. In this article, we will be focusing on the socialization of adolescents in body positivity communities on YouTube and TikTok. The data was retrieved from interviews with adolescents in the age of 16 - 25 years. The results show that for adolescents to experience socialization, it is important to see different bodies and to hear different experiences. The participants in the YouTube community experienced that there is a place for this in their community. However, almost no one in the TikTok community experienced this same feeling in their community. The experienced atmosphere in the communities could be an explanation for the lower levels of socialization in the TikTok community compared to the YouTube community.
