More Stress, More Engagement With Social Media

Parent Interventions

Stress can be a causative factor in the increased use of social media, according to a new study done by the Mental Health Research and Treatment Centre at Ruhr-Universitat Bochum (RUB).

The study was conducted among 309 Facebook users in the age group pof 18 and 56. Students are likely to engage themselves more in social media if they are under stress. The survey questions were designed to deduce the stress levels and the support they received to solve their emotional issues both offline and online. The duration of time spent on FB was also noted. Those having stress face the prospect of  increased use of FB and lead to Facebook Addiction Disorder (FAD).


The study infers that those with increased stress levels may get addicted to social media as they feel uneasy when they go online. It turns into a vicious circle with social media use increasing with stress and going offline causing a return of stress to previous levels.
