While current public and media debate makes the evidence surrounding social media use, teens and well-being seem clear cut, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Amy Orben, a psychology researcher at the University of Oxford, scientifically investigates many of the most pressing questions regarding social media use and adolescent well-being. In her talk she provides a whistle-stop tour of current scientific evidence, outlining unsolved debates and illustrating a surprising lack of clear-cut results. In addition to discussing wide-reaching implications for social and political debates, she also provides information about what is currently being done by scientists to transparently investigate the consequences of social media use.
