Contact Author Psychological Effects of Facebook on Teenagers and its Overuse Facebook effects if parents did not already have enough to worry about, now they need to worry about their children displaying negative psychological effects from overusing Facebook and other social networking sites.
New research revealed August by Dr. Larry Rosena psychology professor at California State University, makes it official what some parents already suspected -- our kids are getting sort of screwed up when they spend too much time on Facebook.
On a more upbeat note, the study also showed a few unexpected benefits of social networking online. Spending too much time on Facebook can have both negative psychological and educational effects on teens.
Negative Psychological Effects Thus far, Rosen has made a year career out of studying the influences technology has on people.
His latest research, which examines teens and Facebook, was conducted using 1, teen surveys and observation of teens actively studying. It concluded that multiple negative psychological effects could result from spending too much time on Facebook and other social media sites.
Teens who use Facebook frequently may become narcissistic. If you are not already familiar with that term, dictionary.
An anti-social child often does not consider the effects their actions have on others. This can be quite dangerous, especially during the already-volatile teen years. Perhaps this should be termed the anti social media effect. The Facebook effect is real, but teens who "overdose" on technology daily, and this includes video games, have higher absenteeism from school and are more likely to get stomach aches, have sleep issues, and feel more anxious and depressed.
Negative Impact on Education Although this pretty much goes without saying, being connected to technology on an ongoing basis can seriously impact a teen's and young adult's education.
The negative educational impacts of regularly checking Facebook during Rosen's minute observation of kids during study time revealed the following: Middle and high school students, as well as college students, who checked their Facebook once during the minute study time had lower test grades.
Perhaps this is similar to being a distracted driver. Those students who checked their Facebook most often also had the lowest rates of reading retention. This probably is not too surprising, but now it is a proven fact, in case you need to tell your kids.
Positive Effects One positive effect of Facebook on teenagers is that it is a place where teens practice empathy, having a real impact on their friends' moods. On a happier note, there were a few benefits to Facebook use, including: Development of a "virtual" empathy which actually affected friends' moods positively, and caused teens to be more empathetic in their everyday lives, as well.
It seems that encouraging comments online can put a smile on someone's face and improve moods. Facebook and other social networking sites give shy children a way to socialize which might otherwise be lacking altogether.Demands on our attention lead us to use Facebook more passively than actively, and passive experiences, no matter the medium, translate to feelings of disconnection and boredom.
