Swinebook and Other Social Media

A girl asked us:

This is a bit embarrassing but I have this desire to look at my Israeli cousin's non-tznius friends online (Facebook & Instagram). Is this coming from a place where I wish I could look as good as them, or is it the yetzer hara trying to get me to look at porn with a few more clicks?

GYE Replied:

I don't know where it's coming from, but when you are on social media sites you are in the Yetzer Hara's zone and he can get you to do all sorts of crazy things. These sites are a very dangerous place for anyone to be on, and all the more so for someone who struggles with these things already:
