Input Requested on Research Synthesis on Social Media Use and Adolescents' Psychological Well-being
Hello SRCD members,
We are reaching out to you to gain your assistance with a research synthesis we are conducting on the link between social media use and psychological well-being among adolescents. The team of researchers working on this synthesis includes undergraduate Crystal Aguilera and Professor Erika Patall at the University of Southern California.
To clarify how you can help, although a thorough search has been conducted on PsycInfo, Google Scholar and other electronic databases, we would like the meta-analysis to be as comprehensive as possible. Therefore, if you have or know of any relevant research on adolescents' social media use and psychological well-being, especially unpublished research, we would very much appreciate hearing from you. The types of documents we are most eager to receive from you include unpublished data, unpublished reports and manuscripts, conference presentations, unpublished dissertations, or in press manuscripts. We will formally cite all viable data we receive.
This research synthesis will include only correlational studies looking at any aspect of social media use and psychological well-being in adolescents. That is, we are interested in studies that examine correlations between social media use and adolescent outcomes. See the list of included studies in the Meta-analysis up to now.
Any information that you may be able to provide will be quite helpful for this research synthesis. We will send you a copy of our final report to all responders. You can send your papers, raw data, or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much,
Crystal Aguilera, Erika Patall, and the Social Media Meta-analysis Team
