Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose was to investigate if there was a correlation between universitystudents use of social media networks and health. Methods: A cross-sectional study with a quantitative onset. 195 students at Luleå University of Technology in Sweden answered a web based survey with questions covering health, use of internet, use of social media network and demographical data. Data was analyzed in SPSS. Results: The result indicated a correlation between increased use of social media networks and illness. There was a significant but weak correlation between symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, overweight, obesity and the experience of physical illness. Conclusion: Health problems tend to increase with an increased use of social media networks. The conclusions should thus be drawn with great precaution considering this study limitation with a small sample and low response rate. This is as far as we know the first study on the subject seen from a nursing perspective and the phenomena and its significance for health promotion ought to be further investigated.
