Especially in children and adolescents, excessive social media usage can lead to stunted social interaction skills, social anxiety, higher depression rates, negative body image, and lower empathy levels.
As our goal at Psychometrica is to improve people’s well-being and fulfillment, we decided to direct particular attention at the problem of social media addiction. We believe that tackling this issue can cause a positive snowball effect of growth and self-improvement by freeing up time and attention to be invested in healthier and more fulfilling activities like self-care, education, and nurturing personal relationships.
Every week, we provide 1-hour-long audio webinars where experts share tips and strategies for shifting attention from the passive consumption of social media feeds to more enriching activities. We also enable the participants to share their experiences, support each other, and enjoy productive social interactions that resemble real life in voice chat rooms composed of up to six people.
