There is no doubt that smartphone use has become pervasive in our society. In a 2018 Pew Research Center poll, 95% of teens reported having access to a smartphone. Some 45% of teens reported using the internet “almost constantly” (a number that has doubled compared to the 2014-2015 survey), while another 44% said they go online multiple times per day.

The negative potential for social media was highlighted in two recent studies. In the first, researchers found that in a cohort of 6,595 U.S. adolescents, those who used social media more than three hours per day were at increased risk for developing mental health problems. The risk was principally seen for internalizing problems such as feeling lonely, sad, depressed or anxious rather than for externalizing problems like acting out or behavior difficulties.
