APA Publishes Report on Guidance for Adolescent Social Media Use

The American Psychological Association (APA) convened a panel that “has issued recommendations for the use of social media by adolescents, noting that while these platforms can promote healthy socialization, their use should be preceded by training in social media literacy to ensure that youth have skills that will maximize the chances for balanced, safe and meaningful experiences.”

These recommendations are compiled in Health Advisory on Social Media Use in Adolescence, which examines relevant scientific literature to offer guidance to educators, parents, policymakers, mental health and health practitioners, technology companies, and young people for developing healthy social media practices. “The report also recommends psychological competencies that youth should possess before using social media, plus periodic booster training to minimize the chances for harm and maximize the benefits that social media can provide,” APA notes.

For more information, read the press release.
