TLDR:

  • Technology and media are leading to a loss of identity and isolation in society.
  • Excessive use of social media can lead to burnout, anxiety, stress, and depression.

As a society becomes more dependent on digital technology, there is a rise in a loss of identity and a sense of isolation. People are relying heavily on devices for basic functions, leading to a lack of patience and understanding of oneself. Excessive scrolling on social media platforms like TikTok can result in feelings of burnout and overwhelming anxiety. This constant connection to technology has also affected creativity and critical thinking skills in college students, limiting their ability to think independently and creatively. Additionally, the addictive nature of social media platforms releases dopamine, leading to a cycle of seeking validation and engagement online. However, there are steps individuals can take to break free from this cycle, such as turning off notifications, engaging in other activities, and prioritizing mental and physical wellness. Ultimately, finding a balance between technology and self-care is crucial in maintaining a healthy relationship with digital media.
