Der israelische Author Sam Vaknin über psychologische Mechanismen von Social Media und wie sich diese "toxisch" auf uns auswirken.
If your last post had 2,000 likes and your next post has thousand likes, you failed. So you are constantly competing against yourself actually, not only against others and not only against the market, but against yourself. You have to exceed yourself all the time. This creates enormous performance anxiety.
Actually we discovered that 41% of freshmen who were on social media reported extreme anxiety, compared to 18% of freshmen in 1985. So the number of freshmen who reported extreme anxiety tripled over this period of time and [social media] was the only component that changed between the two dates. So social media did this.
