Just an hour a day chatting on social networks reduces children’s life satisfaction

This research explores the effect of children's digital social networking on their subjective wellbeing. It used a large representative sample of 10-15 year olds over the period 2010 to 2014 from the UK Household Longitudinal Study, and estimated the effect of time spent chatting on social websites on a number of outcomes which reflect how these children feel about different aspects of their life: school work; appearance; family; friends; school attended; and life as a whole.
