Social media dependency is linked to a reduced preference for freedom, study finds

Social media dependency is associated with a reduced preference for freedom, according to new research published in Psychological Reports. The study suggests that people who are heavily dependent on social media may use it as a way to escape from the uncertainties and challenges of the real world.

Social media dependency refers to a condition in which individuals develop a strong reliance on social media platforms, leading to excessive and compulsive use that negatively impacts various aspects of their lives. It involves an intense need for constant engagement with social media, difficulty in controlling usage, and experiencing negative consequences due to excessive social media use.
