Effects of Teens Self-Esteem on Social Media
One of the most important concerns of social media is how much teens are getting a lot of their self-worth from apps, because they are paying attention to how many followers, responses, friends or likes they have and compare them with others.
Marta Martinez-Hasty, LCSW, Director of Project Gold at Kristi House, affirms those apps impact on them about how they feel and how they respond socially. At this point, she thinks it’s starting to get pretty dangerous, because self-esteem is involved.
The expert also says adults can be affected by Internet in some way, because adults engage in a lot of the same behaviors.
