Why Social Media addiction is not good for Health

Know how social media addiction affects the health.

Wednesday, 11th August 2021

According to this year's study, we have more than 3 billion social media users worldwide. It's a scary number! Thankfully, all of us know that it can be used for better causes, as you can see from the well-known ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, for example. Facebook is also a useful tool for promoting important nonprofits like WWF and UNICEF.


But the problem is not with businesses or charities. Individuals are negatively impacted by online bullying and content triggering. Social media is there to protect the privacy of individuals and is not yet fully regulated. When you fill out your online profile, it's no secret that you have little or no protection against misuse of your personal information, online harassment, or general misinformation, even when all sorts of privacy settings are at hand. You would think people would be delayed by this, but it isn't.


Strangely, if you look at the use of social media in the United States, despite all the negative connotations, it is still growing. Facebook is used by nearly three-quarters of the population, and Instagram is growing in popularity. Twitter is the third most used social media application.


In general, people are aware of the negative impact of sharing their personal life online. At the same time, they also know that managing their content is their responsibility and the user experience is almost entirely up to them. However, the use of social media is an integral part of our lives today, so someone can inevitably experience difficulties in understanding all the negative aspects (eg, minors). For these reasons, it is important to re-establish the rules related to online privacy protection.


It seems impossible to just stop – but why?

It is a contradiction that can separate us from real relationships by forming virtual relationships. We tend to focus more on texting and photo sharing than on today's real-world experiences. Thanks to social media, relationships, and relationships between people have changed dramatically. Adolescents grow up thinking that gathering “likes” with friends online as a form of social life is really normal.


As long as you can catch every influx of new people, news, and all kinds of content, your online presence shouldn't be a risk personally. In fact, techniques for managing social media accounts are all over the internet. Media effects that I recommend reading in this topic: Advances in theory and research. Once you've overcome the initial shock of building an online presence of any kind, you can use it to form convenient connections, whether at work or at leisure. Being aware of filtering out negative content is useful both psychologically and personally. After all, it's nice to be able to build networks and reach people who can't meet in person because of time and distance.


The biggest problem seems to be how these sites handle personal data. How these sites can register, use and sell your personal information online, even with "end-user contracts", or simply track your browser history and related ads It is ambiguous whether it is possible to display.


I'm afraid of this form of surveillance, but people still seem to be very attached to Facebook accounts. I can understand. In times like today, everything is about contact easily. Once you remove it, new or superficial connections you make can be considered very cumbersome or long to contact by means other than the Messenger app.


Each of us has good reasons to continue using our social media accounts. Whether it's an online business or a networking tool, it makes sense to stick with it. After all, collecting and maintaining friendships, partnerships, and providing all kinds of online content takes time and effort. Who do you think would want to close that door on their own? Certainly 70% of Americans agree with this statement. When businesses start with a focus on protecting users from misinformation or misuse of personal information, there is no reason to doubt this. Considering how many companies are having success based almost entirely on the users who follow their content and products, that's fair. Think also of the influence of Instagram and the big tech companies.


Laws are already in force on the use of personal data-creative content, even over-the-phone interviews and observation of online movements. When it comes to sharing information online, this isn't 100% reliable yet, but it definitely helps. Labels are also important when dealing with social media companies. The higher the transparency to the user, the better the label.


The conclusion is that those who think of deleting themselves on the maps of these complex social websites are afraid to delete the account itself rather than losing the meaningful connections created so far. That is not!
