Abstract
Social Network Sites (SNSs) have become a pervasive part of people’s everyday lives, the implications of their use need to be investigated and understood. We conducted a systematic literature review to lay the groundwork for understanding the relationship between SNS use and psychological distress. The review included articles published between 2003 and 2020, extracted from major academic databases. Findings revealed that the use of SNSs use can be associated to psychological distress. This study shows the factors such as depressive rumination, narcissistic behavior, excessive and unsupervised SNS use that mediate this relationship.
