On January 22nd, 2019, Catch Da Flava had another radio show regarding social media and the effects it has on one’s mental health. We had our special guest Mike Stroh from Starts With Me come in and talk about this topic with us. Our hosts were Iman, Kylie, Kayla, Jessica and Meredith.

Our hosts had some interesting questions for Mike, some including does social media impact youth differently than adults? And how does an addiction to social media affect someone mentally and physically? They talked about the positives and negatives of social media has on youth and adults and how in the long run impacts an individuals’ well being.

Mike informed us about the good and bad aspects of social media, some of which includes networking with others or social media taking up too much time throughout our day.  Also,  with this generation teenagers are generally using their phones and on social media minimally 2 hours a day. With phones being more advanced both teenagers and adults are known to be using their phones more often than face to face contact. Social media has several affects on teenagers and adults some including social isolation or addiction.

For more information on this topic, you can listen to our radio show.
