Conversation Starters

Pre-Social Media

  • What are some of the reasons you’re interested in getting social media? What are its benefits?

  • What does a healthy approach to social media look like for you?

  • Social media has benefits, but also drawbacks: being addictive, showing false news, generating negative images of oneself. What are your thoughts on these? How will you handle these?

 

Post-Social Media

  • How has social media benefited you since getting it? What are the drawbacks you’ve noticed?

  • Have you noticed your behavior changing after getting social media?

  • We/I’ve noticed that you [habit/shift in behavior] since getting social media. Do you think this is because of the features used by the app? Your own choices? A mixture of both?

What does deep connection look and feel like?

Usage Tools

Note: we believe in using usage tools, if at all, as a starting point. Emerging research suggests that day-to-day changes in screen-time does not directly impact well-being — so, we recommend focusing on “teens not screens,” but using usage tools to gauge whether you’re successfully shifting your habits.
