Social media - children’s friend or foe? : A literature study about the influence of social media on children’s mental health. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sociala medier har, med en revolutionerande kraft, kommit att bli en stor och självklar del i barns vardag. Samtidigt ökar förekomsten av psykisk ohälsa hos barn i hela världen. Tidigare forskning visar att sociala medier kan ha en påverkan på barns psykiska hälsa och detta samband bör utforskas ytterligare.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur sociala medier påverkar barns psykiska hälsa.

Metod: En litteraturstudie baserad på tio studier, varav nio studier med kvantitativ ansats och en med mixad ansats. Resultaten från studierna har granskats, analyserats och sammanställts. Databaserna som användes vid litteratursökningen var CINAHL, PubMed och PsycINFO.

Resultat: Resultatet sammanställdes i två huvudkategorier: sociala medier påverkar barn psykiskt och sociala medier påverkar barn socialt samt sju underkategorier.

Konklusion: Resultatet visade att sociala medier kan påverka barns psykiska hälsa både i en negativ och positiv riktning. Sjuksköterskan behöver ha kunskap om sambandet mellan sociala medier och psykisk hälsa, för att kunna identifiera sociala medier som en möjlig riskfaktor eller en resurs som kan påverka barns psykiska hälsa. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Social media has with a revolutionary power become a big part in children’s lives. At the same time the incidence of mental illness in children increases. Previous research shows that social media may have an impact on children’s mental health and this association should be explored further.

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of social media on children’s mental health.

Method: A literature study based on ten studies, whereof nine studies with a quantitative approach and one with a mixed-method approach. The results from the studies were reviewed, analyzed and compiled. The databases that were used were CINAHL, PubMed, and PsycINFO.

Results: The results were compiled in two main categories: social media affects children mentally and social media affects children socially and seven subcategories.

Conclusion: The results showed that social media may have a negative and positive influence on children’s mental health. Nurses need knowledge about the association between social media and mental health, to be able to identify social media as a risk factor or resource that can affect children’s mental health.
