Are we too connected?
It has been some time since I last posted, but I found this post particularly interesting. Once again, I have attempted to translate what can at times be overwhelming in a simplified infographic.
It is based on research by a peer done in elite sport and indicates that there may be detrimental effects to athletes at the highest level who engage with social media. This is not to say that there is no good! There is, but it seems to be more superficial than the deeper issues. What is concerning though is that the bad side of social media has been associated with negative effects to athletes mental health. I hope that the infographic sheds some light on the topic area. Bear in mind that the following infographic does not indicate the extent of these effects but indicates some of the potential consequences associated with social media.
