New research on social media use

A new study by Andrea Irmer in the Cognitive Development Lab shows that the use of social media is linked to diminished well-being among children and adolescents. The DIPF researchers primarily investigated the question of how this link arises. The result: upward social comparisons play a central role. The results of the study were published in the scientific journal “Communications Psychology” with the title “Associations between youth’s daily social media use and well-being are mediated by upward comparisons“. The research has been featured as a research highlight in Nature Reviews Psychology.
