ABSTRACT. A growing body of research suggests that Facebook addiction is associated adversely with broad-mindedness, affability, emotional cohesion, extraversion, and diligence. The maladaptive utilization of Facebook may generate adverse societal repercussions: social seclusion, relationship distrust, absence of social attachment, Facebook addiction, etc. Using data from Edison Research, GlobalWebIndex, KPCB, Pew Research Center, Piper Jaffray, Retrevo, Statista, and Triton Digital, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding social media usage among American youth, the fastest growing social and messaging apps worldwide, the percent of Facebook news consumers who regularly see news on Facebook, among the users of selected sites, the percent who use each respective site with certain frequencies, and leading countries based on number of Facebook users.

Keywords: pathological Facebook use; addiction; disorder; anxiety; social seclusion
