Wellbeing and Social Media

In February 2023, members of the World Wellbeing Panel were asked for their views on two statements relating to the relationship between the use of social media and wellbeing.

The two statements were as follows:

Statement 1: The generalized use of social media (Meta, TikTok, YouTube, etc.) puts mental health at risk, especially that of young people.

Statement 2:  There are policy interventions that could ensure that social media is designed and used to promote well-being.

Response options for each statement were: “completely agree”, “agree”, “neither agree nor disagree”, “disagree”, “completely disagree”.
