Social media users often experience the difficulty of controlling their social media use while having important tasks to do. Recent theorizing on self-control and media use proposes four possible factors (immediate gratifications, habitual checking, ubiquity, and notifications) that might cause social media self-control failure (SMSCF). We tested whether these factors indeed predict SMSCF among 590 daily social media users. Results showed that, when people checked social media habitually, or strongly experi...
Social isolation in older adults is associated with numerous adverse health outcomes. In today's digital society, if individuals perceive themselves to be socially isolated, they can take steps to interact with others on social media platforms. Research with younger adults indicates that social media use is positively linked to social isolation. However, less is known about social media use and social isolation in older adults.
Mobile technology provides a unique opportunity to expand access to evidence-based interventions. The objective of this study was to provide an update regarding use of technology in people with serious mental illness (SMI). In 2017, 403 people in treatment for SMI were surveyed. Technology use was common: 65.8% used a smartphone, 53.6% used the Internet on a computer or tablet in the past 6 months, and over two thirds (67.9%) used social media. Rates of technology and Facebook use were similar to rates amo...
Health-related social media data are increasingly used in disease-surveillance studies, which have demonstrated moderately high correlations between the number of social media posts and the number of patients. However, there is a need to understand the causal relationship between the behavior of social media users and the actual number of patients in order to increase the credibility of disease surveillance based on social media data.
Social media are powerful tools that allow users to communicate directly with an online community. Plastic surgeons were early adopters of social media, recognizing their educational and marketing potential. With the use of social media comes ethical and legal concerns. The lack of professional society policies on social media use has led to calls for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons to establish guidelines regarding the use of social media in medical practice. The authors propose a framework for th...
Despite the potential of social media to influence public health and generate insights, the process of monitoring and analyzing the dissemination of health care messages on social media has been described as difficult and in need of improvement.
With the advancement of technology, social media use increases day by day, especially among university students. This descriptive and correlational research was conducted with the aim of investigating attitudes of nursing and midwifery students towards social media in terms of certain variables. The population of the research comprised students studying at the nursing and midwifery department of a health college (N = 336), and the sample of the research constituted students who were chosen using acciden...
Adolescent use of social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat has increased dramatically over the last decade and now pervades their everyday social lives. Active and passive social media use may impact emotional health differently, but little is known about whether and to what extent either type of social media use influences emotional distress among young people. We analyzed population survey data collected from Icelandic adolescents ( = 10,563) to document the prevalence of socia...
Humans have the urge to self-disclose, which is nowadays often satisfied on social media platforms. While the affordances of contemporary social media applications help to indulge this urge, they also pose a significant challenge. People are usually good at leveraging self-disclosure in a way that gratifications are increased and disadvantages are minimized - for example, by avoiding pitfalls such as revealing too intimate information to a large audience. However, when trying to balance self-disclosure grat...
Owing to its convenience and easy accessibility, social media is increasingly popular among healthcare professionals and has become a useful tool in the healthcare industry. Doctors' social media use patterns and online professionalism have been thoroughly studied. Various unprofessional behaviors such as excessive self-disclosure, violations of patient privacy and improper social media posts, were observed. However, studies exploring nurses' social media use and online professionalism are lacking.
Despite the salience of the social media context to psychosocial development, little is known about social media use patterns and how they relate to psychological and social functioning over time during early adolescence. This longitudinal study, therefore, identified subgroups of early adolescents based on their social media use and examined whether these subgroups predicted psychosocial functioning. Adolescents (N = 1205; 11-14 years; 51% female; 51% white) completed surveys at baseline and a six-mont...
Urologists, social media is good for you, your career, and your patients. Take advantage of the obvious benefits, mollify the traps when possible, and learn to live in the social media ecosystem.
Recently, social media use has skyrocketed, especially with millennials. The use of filtered images and photo editing has led to a new trend of social media-induced dissatisfaction with appearance, termed "snapchat dysmorphia" and "selfie dysmorphia". It is important for practitioners to recognize and understand this trend in addition to knowing how to manage these patients. As clinicians, we have bioethical and professional obligations to educate ourselves on new and relevant trends, ensure adequate patien...
Maintaining regular engagement with audiences through various forms of social media is becoming more important as library users and the general public increasingly rely on social media for news, updates, and feedback. While large corporations have been monitoring social media for more than a decade, libraries have recently begun to use social listening to stay abreast of trends and assess user needs as voiced directly by their communities. This column will explain what social listening is, explore concerns ...
Physical activity level decreases during young adulthood. As social media are nowadays widely used and are included into many people's daily routines, the interventions on these websites have the possibilities to be integrated into those routines without becoming a burden. The aim of this study was to assess physical activity level among first- and fifth-year medical students and social media intervention with the aim to improve physical activity among them.
The development of social media applications has made it an important part of students' personal lives. In this article, we aim to determine whether social media usage is beneficial or harmful to college students through academic performance. Through a survey of biological undergraduates, we found that boys use social media applications more frequently than girls, and that GPA is inversely related to the number of social media applications that students subscribe to. In addition, we found that using more so...
Online communication differs from face-to-face communication in multiple ways. Because of these differences, there is an ongoing debate regarding whether people disclose their true selves on social media, or whether they present an idealized or socially appropriate version of themselves. Whereas some features of online communication (such as anonymity and reduced information richness) have been argued to increase self-disclosure, there are other features (such as asynchronicity, multiple audiences, and audi...
Seeking and sharing information are the primary uses of the internet and social media. It is therefore vital to understand the processes individuals go through when engaging with information on these diverse platforms, especially in areas such as health- and risk-related information. One important element of such engagement is evaluating and attributing expertise to others.
Individuals with psychosis are heavy consumers of social media. It is unknown to what degree measures of social functioning include measures of online social activity.
Social media offers promise for communicating the risks and health effects of harmful products and behaviors to larger and hard-to-reach segments of the population. Nearly 70% of US adults use some social media. However, rigorous research across different social media is vital to establish successful evidence-based health communication strategies that meet the requirements of the evolving digital landscape and the needs of diverse populations.
In China, the introduction of antiretroviral treatment has increased the number of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). New technologies, such as social media, might be useful for enhancing HIV surveillance, especially given the lack of Chinese research, which is related to stigma and discrimination. Thus, the relative anonymity of social media may make it useful for evaluating "hard to reach" PLWHA.
Social media is often used for health communication and can facilitate fast information exchange. Despite its increasing use, little is known about child health information sharing and engagement over social media.
This study aimed to investigate the impact of social media on perceptions of food-related content. We asked participants a series of questions about their diet, attitudes, and social media use.

Participants rated the foods in these photos based on how healthy they perceived them to be and how likely they...
Nowadays, social media are often being used by general public to create and share public messages related to their health. With the global increase in social media usage, there is a trend of posting information related to adverse drug reactions (ADR). Mining the social media data for this type of information will be helpful for pharmacological post-marketing surveillance and monitoring. Although the concept of using social media to facilitate pharmacovigilance is convincing, construction of automatic ADR de...
Social media interventions are a growing area of internet research, particularly for adolescent health. Researchers developing social media intervention approaches face the task of selecting a social media platform for their intervention. In this paper, we present the theoretical framework of affordances to help guide social media platform selection for intervention research. Affordances are a concept often used in fields associated with design and by those systematically studying the impact of a design of ...
