This story describes how social media can have both positive and negative effects on your social health.
- When social media is used as a tool to enhance our social networks, it is beneficial.
- When social media is used to compare yourself to others or you are using it to build your self-esteem, then it can be harmful.
- When you keep your virtual “self” congruent with your real life “self” then it can be helpful – otherwise, it can be very damaging to your sense of self and self-esteem.
