Doomscrolling and social media

Doomscrolling and social media

  • According to a 2017 survey, respondents who consumed excessive news reported lost sleep, stress, anxiety, and fatigue.
  • In 1968, a study found a direct correlation between time spent watching television and the likelihood that the watcher will perceive the world more dangerous. Viewers who watch violent television shows generally believe violence is common in reality.

However, the effects of media aren't always negative. It depends on the medium of consumption and how you use it. Actively engaging in positive conversations with friends and family can have a positive effect. Lurking or scrolling through updates without engaging has a negative psychological impact.
