Today is the digital age of networking and communication, and social media has emerged as the main phenomenon in this new age. As Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and Pinterest all continue to gain in worldwide popularity, it’s becoming evident that social media is having a significant effect on our lives, as well as on our brains’ functioning abilities. In particular, scientists and researchers are exploring how social media is impacting our cognitive developing and functioning, such as our attention span, our multitasking skills, our ability (or inability) to focus, and even how our brains are being rewired, to name a few. All of these functions are ones which appear to be drastically impacted by social media participation. This infographic synthesizes our research on this phenomenon. “How Social Media is Ruining Our Minds.” It is surprising how many areas of our lives are impacted by social media.
