Problematic social media use, also known as social media addiction or social media overuse, is a proposed form of psychological or behavioral dependence on social media platforms, similar to gaming disorder, Internet addiction disorder, and other forms of digital media overuse. It is generally defined as the problematic, compulsive use of social media platforms that results in significant impairment in an individual’s function in various life domains over a prolonged period.
