This study examined the relationship between sleep, social media (SM) usage, and social media disorder (SMD) among adolescents. Results show that excessive SM usage decreases sleep quantity, increases sleep onset latency, and increases the risk for a higher SMD score. Evidence from this study can inform OT practitioners of the need for client-centered sleep education programs to improve sleep outcomes and reduce the risk for adverse mental-health outcomes in this population.
