Course Description: A significant number of individuals have evidenced elevated rates of social media exposure (SME) throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. The association between SME, and the prevalence of depression and anxiety, was explored. SME was measured against traditional behavioral science scales inclusive of the Well-Being Index (WHO-FIVE) and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder scale (GAD-7). A positive association was found between elevated rates of SME and the prevalence of anxiety and depression. A significant difference was further noted between illness-types.
