Social media use ’disrupting teen sleep and exercise’ 社交媒體使用「干擾青少年睡眠與運動」






Using social media isn’t directly harming teenagers - but it can reduce the time they spend on healthy activities, such as sleeping and exercising, a study suggests.



Scientists conducted multiple interviews with almost 10,000 teenagers in England between the ages of 13 and 16. The teens reported the frequency they used social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Twitter.



The researchers found that with both boys and girls very frequent social media use was associated with greater psychological distress, but the stress impacted girls more. Girls were also more likely to say they were less happy and more anxious.



Very frequent use of social media may compromise teen girls’ mental health by increasing the risk of cyberbullying and reducing sleep and physical exercise, the researchers said.
