Depression refers to a medical condition that negatively affects an individual’s feelings, thoughts and actions (American Psychiatric Association 2019). Using social media more often also causes depression. Technological advances that have promoted easy accessibility to phones that’s support social media applications has caused an increase in the number of adolescents using social media today. These adolescents are in most cases always idle, thus spending most of their time on social media. This has led to increased cases of depression associated with the use of social media. These adolescents commonly use Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter to connect, interact and stay in touch with their friends and celebrities. Spending much time on these social media platforms leads to increased cases of depression.
