OMG! My social media is making me crazy. There is so much pressure to respond to my friends all the time and I think I am being cyberbullied
Hi, I can help because I went through exactly the same thing and I learned a lot about how to protect myself through social media education."...they found that teens that are on social media more than 5 hours a day are at a higher likelihood of being depressed or self-harming." 1"Moreover these surveys showed that adolescents who spent more time on social media were more likely to report mental health issues." 2
There is nothing wrong with you!Research shows that social media use is addictive, and can impact your physical and mental health, from loss of sleep to depression and anxiety.
Just go away. I feel so depressed, I think there is something wrong with me.
There are things you can do to protect yourself right now!
I feel a lot better, but what if the cyberbullying starts again?
If someone shows harassing behavior to you online block them and report their behavior to the platform!Also, keep an eye on the clock to keep social media use under 5 hours a day!
Please know that there are very few protections for teens on social media. So if you have issues you may want to talk to your parents, teachers, counselors or even the police, if you have to.Right now researchers, lawyers, doctors, educators and computer programmers are all working hard to figure out how to protect teens on social media in the future.
