Kids Using Social Media Are Less Happy.
Online social networking has proliferated worldwide and its impact is widespread on both adults and children. This study by the University of Sheffield researchers surveyed 4,000 U.K. children between 10 to 15 years old, from 2010 to 2014, focusing on the effects of their digital social media use had on their subjective wellbeing.
