Social media addiction — Facebook and Instagram

At Phillips Law Group, we can represent young adults or parents of adolescents who became addicted to Facebook and/or Instagram and suffered serious mental health injuries, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation as a result of social media addiction.

But what exactly is social media addiction? According to a study published in Frontiers in Psychology and provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information — part of the United States National Library of Medicine — “excessive and compulsive use of social media may lead to social media addiction (SMA).”

SMA can impact users’ mental health and lead to anxiety, depression, lower subjective well-being, and poor academic performance, among other concerns. Sadly, a 2017 study of adolescents published in Plos One found that 4.5 percent of young adults suffered from SMA.

In addition, a University of Albany study reported that excessive social media use can also be associated with substance abuse disorder.

Our Social Media Litigation team, headed by Joseph VanZandt, filed 28 lawsuits throughout the country and is investigating other cases. The team has requested the cases be consolidated into multidistrict litigation.

If you believe you or a loved one may be dealing with the repercussions of SMA, we may be able to help you with a legal case. Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with the Phillips Law Group team so we can review your claim and determine the legal options available to you.
