Abstract

Students spend at least two to three hours on social media per day. The question is What is the effect of eliminating social media on the everyday life of these students. It was hypothesized that there would be significant positive effects on the subjects following the elimination of social media. The study was completed using intensive case studies of six students over the course of two weeks. The study examined changes in emotional behavior, social interactions, and psychological effect. Results showed no significant evidence of the effect of eliminating social media on these subjects. Upon reflection, the lurking variable that may have prevented significance was that subjects that eliminated social media were willing to eliminate it and therefore had volunteer bias.
