Ever since the first social media site was created in 1997, social media has had a significant impact on people's mental health. For some, it can lead to depression and isolation, it can lead to FOMO, can become addictive, and Doomscrolling can create bad habits. In this project, I hope to bring awareness to the topic of social media affecting mental health because it is a problem in our world, and the more self-awareness we learn about how it affects our habits, the more we can help give people a better understanding and way of managing it.
