In addition, some authors have indicated that certain social networking site activities might be associated with low self-esteem, especially in children and adolescents"

  8. 8. MEDIA MULTITASKING Media multitasking involves using one form of media in conjunction with another. Young individuals incorporate media surfing into everyday daily activities and they do so while using multiple devices at once. 5 (11)

  10. 10. MEDIA USE AT NIGHT Teenagers spoke about the pressure they felt to make themselves available 24/7, and the resulting anxiety if they did not respond immediately to texts or posts. Teens are so emotionally invested in social media that a fifth of secondary school pupils will wake up at night to log on, just to make sure they don't miss out.

  11. 11. "THE GROWTH IN TIME SPENT ON THE INTERNET IS DRIVEN BY THE GROWING NUMBER OF CONNECTED DEVICES WE HAVE WITH US ALL THE TIME" SUSAN KRASHINSKY, (4) 7
  12. 12. WHY IS HEAVY USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA ASSOCIATED WITH WORSE MENTAL HEALTH? 3 FACTORS AT PLAY HEAVY USAGE MAY INFLUENCE IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF PHYSICAL HEALTH, WHICH IN TURN AFFECTS MENTAL HEALTH. HEAVY USERS OF SOCIAL MEDIA OFTEN REMAIN SLUMPED IN A CHAIR, SHUT UP IN THEIR ROOM, GLUED TO THEIR SCREEN. THIS SOMETIMES MEANS THAT THEY ARE SKIPPING MEALS OR STAYING SEDENTARY FOR EXCESSIVE PERIODS OF TIME. THIS IS WORRYING GIVEN THAT REGULAR EXERCISE AND A HEALTY DIET ARE BOTH LINKED TO GOOD MENTAL HEALTH (5) 01
  13. 13. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT " PASSIVE- USE" OF SOCIAL MEDIA MAY BE BAD FOR MENTAL HEALTH. PASSIVE USE REFERS TO QUIETLY OBSERVING OTHER PEOPLE' S SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILES AND PICTURES. STUDIES SHOW THAT THIS LEADS TO ENVY AND RESENTMENT, WHICH CAN LOWER SELF- ESTEEM AND WELL BEING. ( 5) 02
  14. 14. 03 "Active use" of social media had been linked to poor mental health. Active use refers to the practice of regularly posting pictures, videos, status updates, comments or posts. In doing so, many young people engage in strenuous impression management, filtering reality with the purpose of seeking the approval and admiration of others. This can be very damaging to a young persons self-esteem if posts and photos receive few likes or comments. The whole process may lead young people to question their value over others, resulting in unhealthy self-scrutiny of body image, physical appearance and general lifestyle. This leads to self- doubt and self-loathing. (5)
