    Hi everyone,

    We know that social media can play a really big part in your lives and that lots of you use it every day.  We always want to have info and advice that will help when you need it and we also wanted to try to find out a bit more about how social media can make you feel.

    So, can social media make you feel different things depending on what it’s maybe used for?  Maybe some of you find that it helps you in some way while others might find it a difficult place to be.  What do you all think?

    What do you think when adults maybe talk about the time being spent on social media – does being on for longer or shorter times make a difference?  Do you think about screen time?

    There can be lots of news and info on social media but sometimes, it might not all be true.  Is that something you think or worry about?

    And are there some things about social media you’d like to have Childline talk more about?  We have info on staying safe online but we’d love to hear what advice you can be looking for and to know more about your thoughts!

    You don't have to answer everything and you can add anything else in as well - it's about what you'd all like to say!

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    i think that having social media can help with friends and staying in contact, however i think likes and dislikes shouldn't excist, because i get so obsessed by them, along with many other people, seeing how much your post is liked, it's kinda addictive.

    I think the amount of time spent on the day, it doesn't matter, so long as you are safe.

    I think people should be more aware of the time they are spending on their screens. I wish my phone didn’t distract me from my schoolwork as much as it does and I don’t know what to do about it!

    Social media enables us to see fake versions of people that we believe to be true. Instagram is full of people looking their best and surrounded by friends having a good time. This leads us to wonder why our lives aren’t as exciting or happy like that all time. However, in reality, they only post what you want to see to make their life look forever happy and all smiles.

    I hate it when adults blame social media and screen time for everything. If texting my friends and playing video games all day makes me happy, so be it! Don't complain about how I get too much screen time/don't get enough exercise/am lazy/don't do anything productive

    I recommend a kids' creative social media called PopJam. It's so much fun!
