The study I have chosen to write about is "A Social Identity Perspective of Social
Media's Impact on Satisfaction with Life." This study focused on social media and its effects
on a person's life. The purpose of this study was to focus and understand on socials medias
positive and negative effects on individual and different age groups. The second purpose was
to find out whether it causes a type of addiction and if it has effects on mental health and if
people are at risk if they aren't already. In the article is states "
The current research thus seeks
to understand the impacts of social media addiction, fear of missing out (FoMO) and narcissism
on SwL and the role of self‐esteem in those relations." (Dutot, V. (2020).
For this research I looked at the different in ages to see if youth are more suspectable than
older generations and to see who it affects more. I also looked at the different between people
having a social media presence and people who do not and if they have any FOMO like people
who are on social media. In the article it stated "the demographics of the respondents were
skewed slightly, with more male (52.3%) than female (47.7%) participants. In addition, the
respondents were aged primarily between 26 and 35 years old (43.1%), followed by 36-49 years
old (30.8%), and 19-25 years old (18.4%)" (Dutot, V. (2020).
