Young people are growing up with a “warped view of what is normal because so much of what they see on social media is false”, says Damian Hinds.
The education secretary wants “fewer selfies” and more “authenticity”.
He warned of the risk of online bullying and the pressure of “negative body images” on social media.
An international report this week showed England’s schools had the worst problem with cyber-bullying out of 48 countries.
Mr Hinds says he wants social media companies, celebrities and online influencers to “take their responsibility more seriously” in protecting young people from bullying or harmful content on the internet.
He pointed to a report from the OECD think tank on Wednesday which showed head teachers in England were more likely to face problems with online bullying than in any other developed country.
