Excessive social media use can create self-perpetuating cycle and negative effect
If one is addicted to social media a few minutes staying away from it could result in FOMO. This fear of missing something, will cause anxiety, reduces self-esteem, and will make one use social media more and more.
Some people go on Instagram post selfies and post stories about what is happening in their life almost every day. These also have a habit of comparing themselves to others. The more time they spend on thinking and reading about what others saying or commenting, more you try to impress people.
Cyberbullying is what could cause more damage in one’s life. We don’t have much control on what others say about us in real life, then how can we control what others write or post on us on social media? Because most teens and young adults have smartphone access anytime one can experience bullying by virtual means.
To get more likes, followers and comments a person can constantly be on social media.
Those who spend time on social media before going to be, while on bed and even waking up to see what is happening obviously get less sleep. Light from the devices disrupt sleep and will have serious impact on mental health.
An attempt to reduce the time on social media is the first step to have a peaceful and healthy mind.
