This research departs from the phenomenon of self-existence or also called self-expression among users of social media Instagram. This phenomenon can cause problems, one example is data leakage, which can occur if one shows oneself too often on Instagram social media. The data leaked is usually misused by other parties for their interests. The purpose of this study is to analyze the variables of self-esteem and self-presentation related to this phenomenon, especially to find out the forms of self-esteem and self-presentation that users do on Instagram. The research subjects included 110 teenage Instagram users involved based on their willingness to fill out the self-esteem and self-presentations questionnaires. This study uses variance analysis techniques towards the data, particularly to compare the average total score on variable aspects. The results of the analysis show that the four aspects of self-esteem have different average values and that virtue is the most sought-after form of self-esteem. Likewise, the comparison of the five aspects of self-presentation shows that the positive one is the dominant form performed by the subjects. This research is expected to provide theoretical benefits in the field of social psychology, and in practical terms, to provide an overview of self-presentation on Instagram.
