Social media addiction
|Social media addiction|
A psychological review published in 2016 stated that "studies have also suggested a link between innate basic psychological needs and social network site addiction." "Social network site users seek feedback, and they get it from hundreds of people—instantly. It could be argued that the platforms are designed to get users “hooked”."
As awareness of these issues developed, many technology and medical communities continued to work together to develop novel solutions. Apple Inc purchased a third party application and then incorporated it as "screen time", promoting it as an integral part of iOS 12. A German technology startup developed an Android phone specifically designed for efficiency and minimizing screen time. News Corp reported multiple strategies for minimizing screen time. Facebook and Instagram announced "new tools" that they consider may assist with addiction to their products.
