The Impact of Social Media on Teenage Mental Health
Social media has become an integral part of the lives of teenagers today. These platforms allow teenagers to connect with their peers, share their experiences, and express themselves in ways that were not possible before.
According to a 2021 survey by Pew Research Center, around 88% of American teenagers aged 13 to 17 reported using social media. This is a significant increase from the 81% of teenagers who reported using social media in 2018. With the rise of social media, concerns have been raised about its impact on the mental health of teenagers.
