Veronica Quintana: Effects of Social Media



Social media has become an important tool of communication for many people. This project emphasizes the benefits and disadvantages social media brings to people and their mental health by showing the most relevant effects. The main beneficial effects are that it connects people, helps with their education, and provides online therapy. On the other side, the adverse effects it has on people are that it creates a sense of isolation, anxiety, and affects self-esteem. This study focuses on how these effects are developed by providing solid evidence connected to real life. Also, it analyzes the solutions and prevention of the adverse effects. Finally, this study is fully charged with empathy and reflection by understanding and exploring the different viewpoints and solutions for a society with stable mental health.
