Outcomes Associated with Heavy Social Media Usage By Kuwait University Students .

Auther : Dr. Jamal J. AL-Menayes

     This study focused on the impact of social media on an individual's life at both the social and the psychological levels. At the social level the study looked at the effect of social media usage on ``social displacement.'' Results showed that heavy social media usage does come at the expense of time spent with the family. Also at the social level the study examined the effect of social media on the individual's perceived social life. Results have shown that those who spend more time using social media felt that their social life has improved as a result.
     At the psychological level the study looked at the relationship between social media usage and self-confidence. There was no significant relationship between the two variables. However, gender was a strong predictor of self-confidence with females feeling more confident online than males. The study also examined the relationship between social media usage, anxiety and sleep disturbance. Results showed that the more time an individual spends using social media the more likely he or she will feel anxious if the service is interrupted. Time spent using social media was also related to having difficulty sleeping at night.
