Abstract

The following thesis is the discussion and exploration of research undertaken to understand if Social Media has an impact on people’s lives, and more specifically on their mental health. Beginning with an introduction into social media which will highlight the importance of the topic and how it needs to be recognised more widely. The aim of this study is to find out if people find social media sites are affecting them mentally and if they believe they are addicted to them. I will review previous academic research into this topic and use many other online sources (mainly) to complete my research. I will use much of this information in my literature review and conduct a survey, using 100 participants in order to legitimise my secondary research. In my results section I will do an in-depth analysis on the answers which are received for my survey. I will analyse and conclude all relevant information and attempt an answer on the hypothesis. In the conclusion section I will offer my recommendations for furthering my study or any other individual which it is appropriate.
