Children that are on social media for at least 1 hour a day are more likely to be unhappy

Social media makes you less happy. It has been well researched and well documented, and new studies are coming out about the extremely negative effects that social media can have on the wellbeing of children. A study found that as little as one hour of social media each day is likely to cause kids to be less happy and content with their life. This is largely due to the comparisons that inevitably come when you look at other people’s (best moments of their) lives and compare it to the mundane parts of your own.
