What is social media addiction?

Social media addiction is characterized by the compulsive urge to spend time on social media. Our brains release feel-good chemicals when we engage on social media. The more we engage, the better we feel. So, we keep coming back for more.

It’s no different than becoming addicted to nicotine, alcohol, or gambling. Over time, it takes increasing amounts of the thing that’s making us feel good to satisfy us. That’s why we begin to experience a compulsive urge to check social media.

While adults can become addicted to social media and experience adverse effects, the most significant problems tend to be seen in kids, teens, and young adults.

Social Media Companies Know Their Platforms are Addictive — and They Don’t Care

Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube, among others, are built to be addictive.

According to Facebook’s former director of monetization, Tim Kendall, Facebook knowingly made its social media platform “as addictive as cigarettes.”

In an interview, Kendall acknowledged that Facebook’s objective is to “get more people to pay attention to your product and to pay attention longer each and every day.” The company created algorithms to make this happen, essentially luring vulnerable and impressionable teenagers onto the platform.

Kendall called Facebook “fundamentally addictive” and admitted that “it’s causing all kinds of mental health issues … [and] eroding aspects of society.”

Kendall’s sentiments were confirmed by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who testified before the U.S. Committee on Science, Commerce, and Transportation on October 4, 2021.

In her testimony, she explained that Facebook executives “repeatedly encountered conflicts between its own profits and our safety” and “consistently resolved those conflicts in favor of its own profits.”

Simply put, social media companies knowingly prioritize profits over the health and well-being of their users.

Who can file a social media lawsuit?

Social media lawsuits have taken the nation by storm, with more than 1,200 families (and counting) taking legal action.

You may have the right to file a social media addiction lawsuit if:

  • You spend three or more hours using social media every day.
  • Your social media addiction began before you turned 21.
  • Social media addiction has caused psychological or physical harm that you have sought treatment for.

If your child has become addicted to social media and experienced serious mental health problems or physical harm, you may also have the right to file a lawsuit on their behalf.
