With the rapid rise of social network sites, people’s life and work are influenced to varying degrees. And this paper aims to explore how does social network sites use(SNSU) affect employee well-being(EWB) and the mediating effects of body image disturbance(BID) and self-esteem(SE). Social network sites use, employee well-being, body image disturbance and self-esteem scales were used to obtain data of 435 employees. Results showed that social network sites use positively predicted employee well-being; Self-esteem played a mediating role in the relationship between social network sites use and employee well-being, but the mediation of body image disturbance and the chain mediation of body image disturbance and self-esteem weren’t significant. So social network sites use can lead to body image disturbance to some extent but overall, its impact was positive, which was contributing to employee well-being.
