We represent young adults or parents of adolescents who became addicted to Facebook and/or Instagram and suffered serious mental health injuries, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation.
A few of the listed negative experiences tied to social media are; fear of missing out, inadequacy about your life, isolation, cyberbullying, emotional exhaustion, low quality of sleep, and self-absorption. Many of these experiences create a cycle of users returning repeatedly.
Social media platforms are aware of the dangers they are introducing to young adults, the vulnerable and at-risk users to generate profits. Addictive tactics are being used based on rewarding behaviors and tracking focus and engagements to create dopamine like other addictions.
According to Data Reportal: 17 of the largest social media platforms had at least 300 million active users in July 2022. Facebook has 2.936 billion monthly active users and Instagram has a potential advertising reach of 1.44 billion. A 2018 study by Hopelab and Well Being found that 93% of youth aged 14-22 use social media daily. Earthweb states that teens spend an average of three hours a day on social media, while some reported spending up to 9 hours on social media.
