Course Description: Excessive social media use has been linked to impaired sleep and mental health, but the relationships among these variables are not fully clear owing to reliance on cross-sectional designs in prior researchThe present study used an experience sampling method to determine whether bedtime social media use influences sleep quality and whether sleep quality, in turn, influences positive and negative affect the following day. Undergraduate participants used a smartphone app for 14 consecutive days that prompted them six times per day to record their social media use and affect. Sleep quality was recorded by means of responses to a prompt as well as an actigraph worn each night during the study. Unexpectedly, the researchers found that bedtime social media use was not predictive of either quality of sleep or affect the following day. Only subjective sleep satisfaction was associated with positive and negative affect during the day. The results suggest that bedtime social media use might not undermine sleep and affective well-being to the extent indicated by prior research.
