    Sociala mediers effekt på ungdomar och unga vuxnas psykiska hälsa: En litteraturstudie2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: In recent years, the use of social media has increased significantly in young people. 92 percent of all 13 to 16-year-olds today use social media where the most common media are Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Something else that increases at the same rate as social media is mental illness in young people. Aim: The purpose of this literature study is to investigate whether adolescents and young adults (age 13-24) use of social media has any effects on their mental health and well-being. Method: The method is a literature study in which 21 peer reviewed articles have been analyzed to answer the questions. Result: Social media proved to have both a negative and a positive effect on young people. Psychological consequences could be demonstrated and explained by how social media are used, how often they are used and different mediating variables. The strongest mediation was shown to be FoMO, the fear of missing something out if not constantly checking through their social media. Social media was also shown to be a health-promoting tool if used in moderation, as the individual then develops his or her communication skills and strengthens the social interaction and support. Conclusion: Social media have both positive and negative effects on mental health. However, the conclusion in this literature study is that the negative effects outdo the positive effects, and social media should therefore be used with more caution and reflection.
