Social Media Addiction

Have you ever had an uncontainable urge to log on to and use social media? If yes, then you might be a social media addict. Though some research has been done on the causes and effect and internet use, that social media addiction remains a topic that has been very difficult to define. 


In the current era, social media is quite prevalent throughout society, thereby making it hard to avoid. Since it has become a part of our developed world. 


Today, I have the opportunity to explain to you the impacts of social media addiction. There are four major impacts of social media addiction that include; Potential psychological impact, Interpersonal impact, Organizational impact, Health communication impact.      


Let us start with the potential psychological impact that most of us can relate to. Studies link social media addiction with depression, long-term anxiety, and attention deficit. Some research on internet addiction has shown side effects similar impulse control disorder. 


The relationship between social media and depression is complex.  However, researchers have proposed a phenomenon known as “Facebook depression” that comes about when children and youths spend a lot of time on social media sites and then start to demonstrate classic symptoms of depressions. 


While this problem seems to be widespread across many countries, some research shows Millennials to be most affected by this condition. College students in particular seem to be at a greater risk than other demographics of becoming addicted to social media.   


Social Media is used as a coping skill when one is stressed, it ultimately leads to anxiety in the future. Having touch on the potential psychological impact of social media addiction, let us move on to interpersonal impact. Although social media was designed to bring people closer together by apparently, it’s making many feels left out. Teens with high social emotional well-being experience this less than teenagers with low social emotional well-being.  


Social Media addiction adversely affects interpersonal relationships. Ruined relationships and failed marriages have now been added to the list of negative effects of social media. When people pay more attention to their social network than their partners, it becomes challenging to build or enhance a relationship. One in three divorces is caused by social media disagreements. 

Another big concern is that social media addicts make poor choices like scrolling through their social media apps while driving. On average, distracted driving kills or injured thousands of people. 

I also want to mention that teenage addiction to social media is responsible for sleep deprivation. 


Some of social media drawbacks lie with the loss of nonverbal context, isolation factor, and socialization. Social Media platforms focusing on “likes” or “follows” mirror nonverbal actions that impact user’s engagement on social media. Social Media users from engaging in face-to-face interactions frequently, and hence promotes isolation. In terms of socialization impact, social media contributes to cyberbullying. 

According to smartphone addiction statistics an average person checks their phones 52 times daily. Teens who spend over five hours a day on social media are more vulnerable to suicide compared to teens who only use social networks of an hour a day. Even though thirty four percent of young adult’s experience fear of missing out when not on social media, while twenty two percent of adults share that feeling.  


Besides, psychological and interpersonal impacts, social media addiction is associated with organizational impact. At the workplace, social media addiction interferes with corporate culture and leads to disruptions. Social media may either promote or intimidate an organization’s corporate culture. Casual social media use leads to distraction. 


Social media addiction is also associated with health communication impact. The use of social media in health communication may lead to unethical problems, with healthcare professionals violating patient confidentiality by posting various patient cases online. 


In conclusion, social media has made a big impact in our lives making it somehow more convenient. However, there are negative consequences that come with it. There is no doubt that frequent social network usage leads to harmful effects on the Potential psychological impact, Interpersonal impact, Organizational impact, and Health communication impact of the well-being of its users. 


I believe everyone needs to unplug from social media every now and then. In this world that we are always connected, it is a necessary action to take. It will help us live emotionally and personally healthier and fuller lives.
