eBook: Social Media, Depression and Addiction

In this eBook you’ll learn about:

  • The Demographics of Social Media
  • Social Media Addiction
  • Benefits of Social Media When Used Properly
  • How to Use Social Media in a Healthy Way

Social media has become a mainstay in our lives. Sites like Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and Facebook have changed the way we communicate with others. Eight in ten Americans who are online use Facebook, the most popular social media platform with over a billion and a half users—and growing.

The average social media user spends nearly two hours on their chosen platforms each day. That number is expected to increase as these sites continue to develop. The large amount of time we spend on social media has led to more feelings of anxiety and depression, according to an article published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.2 It has also reduced the amount of time we spend interacting with family and our wider social circle.
