This past month without social media, I have found myself in so many ways. I have realized how much social media controlled my life and dictated my relationships with other people. I feel that I have become more confident with who I am and happier in my relationships with other people throughout the month in the absence of social media. For my AP Capstone project, I am researching the effect of social media on teenagers’ mental health. I did an initial survey at the beginning at October and am now conducting a survey to gauge the correlation between the absence of social media on teens’ mental health. I would really appreciate if you could take a couple of minutes to fill out the Post Offline October survey, whether you made it through the month without social media or not!
