Sexting. Cyberbullying. Narcissism. Social media has become the dominant force in young people's lives, and each day seems to bring another shocking tale of private pictures getting into the wrong hands, or a lament that young people feel compelled to share their each and every thought with the entire world. Have smartphones and social media created a generation of self-obsessed egomaniacs? Absolutely not, Donna Freitas argues in this book. And, she says, these alarmist fears are drawing attention away from the real issues that young adults are facing. Drawing on a large-scale survey and interviews with students on thirteen college campuses, Freitas finds that what young people are overwhelmingly concerned with -- what they really want to talk about -- is happiness. They face enormous pressure to look perfect online -- not just happy, but blissful, ecstatic, and fabulously successful. Unable to achieve this impossible standard, they are anxious about letting the less-than-perfect parts of themselves become public. Far from wanting to share everything, they are brutally selective when it comes to curating their personal profiles, and worry obsessively that they might unwittingly post something that could come back to haunt them later in life. Through candid conversations with young people from diverse backgrounds, Freitas reveals how even the most well-adjusted individuals can be stricken by self-doubt when they compare their experiences with the vast collective utopia that they see online. And sometimes, as on anonymous platforms like Yik Yak, what they see instead is a depressing cesspool of racism and misogyny. Yet young people are also extremely attached to their smartphones and apps, which sometimes bring them great pleasure. It is very much a love-hate relationship. While much of the public's attention has been focused on headline-grabbing stories, the everyday struggles and joys of young people have remained under the radar. Freitas brings their feelings to the fore, in the words of young people themselves.… (mere)

The Happiness Effecct, By Donna Freitas
How Social Media is Driving a Generastion to Appear Perfect at Any Cost.

This book is based on a research study with students on thirteen different college campuses. Through surveys and interviews with these college students, you will learn how they are using Social Media and what that means to them.

Through honest and frank conversations with these young college students, we learn that even well-adjusted individuals can be filled with self-doubt when they compare their lives with those they see online. Wanting to seam perfect to others, when in fact no one is perfect or has a perfect life. Coming from a variety of diverse backgrounds the real search for these college students is for happiness. They are more aware now, then ever before, that what they put online can be seen by anyone. Worrying about what they post and how that will be perceived in the future, not only by friends but potential employers. Will past posting mistakes come back to haunt them. They share their feeling about different websites and how they or others use them is enlighten.

A very good read that I enjoyed. ( )

Research in The Happiness Effect offers a multitude of insights into the negative effects of Social Media,
notably on young people's emerging identities, minds, and spirits.

It is timely reading, not only for parents, teachers, and the people affected, but for therapists and doctors
who will be dealing with the emotional and physical impacts of the fallout from online appearances counting
way more than the reality of happiness which gets further distorted.

My copy will go next to expand and enhance the work of my Family Therapist daughter.

Where to go for solutions? ( )

I received this book through LibraryThing. I like this book because most of my students are part of this generation she is describing. They might be in middle school but social media seems to be the center of their lives. Most of the students interviewed sound like they are closer my age and I was kind of surprised by the results. I am not sure that ALL kids/young adults are quite so concerned with their future employers seeing their Facebook, however, I do think they care about things like getting likes. I know lots of kids spend time crafting their posts and making sure their pictures are pretty or funny. This books highlights the sad truth that the social media that is meant to help us feel connected is actually driving us farther apart. ( )
