Janey, Brianna, "Digital Diet: Addressing the Effects of Social Media & Internet Addiction on Stress and Anxiety Levels in Students" (2020). Senior Honors Theses. 1028.
The contents of this thesis will address the effects of social media and internet addiction on stress and anxiety levels within students. The research process began by comprehensively defining the problem as being how online usage affects the levels of stress and anxiety within students. After establishing the problem, a review of existing literature presenting possible solutions to this problem was conducted. Each artifact was assessed for overall effectiveness in relation to the target demographic. Finally, a cohesive digital social good campaign that seeks to encourage students to create mindful online habits is presented as a creative solution that successfully integrates the research conducted through both intentional aesthetics and thoughtful content.
