Social Media Disorder Scale

Social Media Disorder Scale by PsyToolkit

I scored 2.0 on the Social Media Disorder (SMD) Scale when I took the test. I find the questions to be quite interesting. Some questions were about social life, and some were about personal feelings. Some people would lie on this scale because they think “it’s not that bad.” They try to normalize that their behavior is “just” borderline disorder. For example, one of the questions is as follows: had a severe conflict with your parents, brother(s), or sister(s) because of your social media use? I never fought with my parents about my social media use. I didn’t think that these types of things existed out there. Overall, I think the scale accurately measures people’s addiction. If they were honest, they would know that they have a problem and that their action is not regular.
