 Abstract

 

Title: Online versus Offline - A comparative qualitative study on how young individual’s health and social relationships are influenced by connection versus disconnection

 

Authors: Malin Ensgård, Lisa Hallberg Nilsson

 

Aim: The aim of this study is to compare how young individuals communicate depending on how connected they are to social media. More specifically how it affects their mental health and social relationships, and how their usage of social media platforms should be adjusted.

 

Method/Material: In order to collect empirical material, we use focus group interviews and self-observations as methods.

 

Main Results: The study has shown a general desire for those who are not disconnected to take more distance from social media. It also shows a critical approach to social media and an awareness that the choice of being connected or disconnected is important.
