Real Life Teens: Social Media Addiction

With the rising phenomenon of social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter, constant interconnectivity with friends and family is now part of daily life for many teens.But rather than enriching their lives, is social media just another avenue for teens to become addicted?

One of the biggest problems facing our teens today is the addictive, pervasive effects of social media. It can lead to increased distractibility, anxiety, depression, and apathy. Fear of missing out (FOMO) is a very real feeling that's starting to permeate teen social relationships. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are making this increasingly more difficult for a young person to avoid.

Teens can quickly become self-absorbed in a superficial online world. As a direct result, they crave affirmations from their peers in the form of likes, favorites, shares, retweets, reblogs, and revines. They can even start to feel irrelevant without loads of social media attention. Teens who have trouble connecting face to face may depend on the Internet as a place where they feel understood by their peers and use it as a replacement for social interaction. While they might use social networking sites to connect with others, spending too much time on the internet can actually lead to social isolation, depression, and withdrawal from family and friends.
