Course Description: People show large variations in the quantity, emotional, and behavioral attachments of social media usage, and these variations may be associated with different mental health outcomes. The present study aims to identify distinct patterns of social media use and to examine whether certain types of social media use patterns are related to symptoms of depression and anxiety. Future research should seek to develop educational interventions that address social media use patterns rather than single aspects of social media use, such as quantity of social media usage.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify at least 3 variables that the researchers utilized to identify distinct patterns of social media usage.
  2. Identify at least 3 results of the current study, and 1 implication associated with the study results.
  3. Identify at least 3 strengths and weaknesses of the current study.

Course Outline

  • Read and understand Social media use and depression and anxiety symptoms: A cluster analysis
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the strengths, weaknesses, and implications of the current study
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/ or to better understand the relationships between social media usage patterns and symptoms of anxiety and depression.
