What we’re doing

In collaboration with Dr. Glen Coppersmith and Dr. Alex Fine of Qntfy/Sondermind, we’re investigating whether specific social media behaviors are related to mental health and well-being in youth. In particular, we’re hoping to identify the linguistic patterns that predict loneliness.

Why it matters

This project will provide insights that may lead to the development of a new and improved social media-based measure of loneliness. This measure could make it easier to test the efficacy of large-scale social and mental well-being interventions.
