Parents, educators and young people do you know the best and worst social media apps for young people’s mental health?
I wanna show you a report that describes the negative Effects Of Social Media On Teenagers.
(SPH) and the young health movement have published a new report called #statusfomind examining the positive and negative effects of social media on young people’s health and it includes a list of social media platforms according to their impact on young people’s mental health and I’d like to show that report to you right now.
Here’s some teen social media stats, 91% of 16 to 24 years olds use the Internet for social media and social networking.
Social media use is linked with increased rates of anxiety, depression and poor sleep.
Social media has been described as being more addictive than cigarettes and alcohol.
Here’s a list of the best and worst social media apps for teens mental health according to this report:
On the best side we have YouTube, Twitter and Facebook and worst is Instagram and Snapchat.
Now let’s look at a list of potential negative effects of social media.
1.Anxiety and depression
Research suggests that young people who spend 2 hours per day on social media or more are likely to report poor mental health including psychological distress and symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Numerous studies have shown that increased social media use has a significant association with poor quality sleep in young people.
Using phones, laptops and tablets at night before bed is also linked with poor quality sleep.
Body image is an issue for many young people, both male and female. Studies have Shown that when women in their teens and early 20s view Facebook for only a short period of time,
body image concerns are higher compared to non-users.
Bullying during childhood is a major risk factor for a number of issues including mental health,
education and social relationships, with long lasting effects often carried right through to adulthood.
5.FOMO(the fear of missing out)
FOMO has been robustly linked to higher levels of social media engagement,
meaning that the more an individual uses social media, the more they are likely to experience FOMO.
Now let’s look at some of the potential positive effects of social media.
1.Access To Expert Health Information
Social networking offers young people who maybe suffering from mental health issues an opportunity to read,
watch or listen to, and understand, the health experiences of others relating them back to their own reality.
Conversations on social media can emerge and provide young people with essential interactions to overcome difficult health issues,
particularly when they may not have access to that support face to face.

The community building aspect of social media is also distinctly positive for many young people.
By joining “social media groups” young people can surround themselves with like-minded people and share their thoughts or concerns.
Self-expression and self identity are important aspects of development throughout the teen years.
Social media can act as an effective platform for positive self-expression, letting teens put forward their best self.
5.Building Upon Relationships
There is evidence to suggest that strong adolescent friendships can be enhanced by social media interactions, allowing young people to create stronger bonds with people they already know.

BBNaija’s Lucy reacts after being accused of online begging (video)
• Rumours have made the rounds stating that all the gifts Lucy received from people were as a result of her begging for them.
• The Ex-Lockdown star stated that as long as she knows the God she serves, He will always provide for her and not through begging.
Big Brother Naija season 5 Lockdown reality television star and ex-housemate Lucy Edet Essien has taken out time to retort an accusation by people who claim she begs for gifts.
In a video the reality star posted via her Instagram story on Wednesday, January 20, she mentioned that a lot of people have been saying she begged for all the gifts she received since after BBNaija Lockdown show.
And this could be linked to a recent package the BBNaija star received from someone whom her colleague Kiddwaya gave her phone number. She has also received a cash from her female co-reality star Nengi who according to Lucy, gave her money totalling thousands of naira.
However, Lucy believes the secret to her gifts has been because she’s doing the right thing which is GIVING, hence, the bible verse, ‘give and you shall receive.’
The Cross Rivers State-native added that people should understand that whenever you know the God you serve, you don’t have to beg, because He will always provide for you.
“If you’re getting pissed that I’m getting gifts and all that, have you ever sat down to ask yourself ok, may be she’s actually doing something right, may be she’s actually giving to people.
“I don’t know how you should be expecting that I would come and announce, oh! I gave to this one, I gave to that. Not all of us have that mindset.
“God said that what you’re doing, your left hand must not know. If you give with the right, your left hand should not know. That’s how you get your own reward.
“I don’t see why I have to come and explain to anybody or people telling me, oh! me I’m going around begging.
“All I just have to say is that if you know the God you serve, basically, you don’t have to beg, God would always provide.”
