The vast uncertainty has permeated contemporary social life and has brought in a dynamic society where individuals are bestowed different identities and different ways of being in society. This paper analyses 12 books and papers from digital libraries to investigate social media’s impacts on contemporary feminism movement. The meaning of this paper is to deepen our understanding of social media, which, as a form of socialisation, contribute to reshaping contemporary feminism agenda and social media producers and consumers and further adjusting social reality; although research also shows that it also brings a distortion of the truth and harmony, and implies an encroachment on the public sphere; social media provide space for women to speak up, to express their desire, to communicate and interrogate contemporary sexuality and gender issues. On the other hand, social media act as a platform for women’s psychological projection to manipulate women’s psychology.
