A study published in PLOS One highlights the importance of the difference  between social media platforms in relation to the psychological impact of social media. The findings revealed that active use of Facebook during the pandemic was tied to greater negative affect, while active uses of Twitter and Instagram were tied to greater life satisfaction through increased social support


Respondents completed a series of questions to gather further understanding of their behaviour on the various social media platforms.
