For some parents, social media is the new television: some are happy if they can “park” their children in front of a device, others warn of harmful influences. For a long time, psychologists and sociologists have been warning of the pressure exerted by the algorithms of Instagram, Snapchat or Tiktok on body image or political beliefs, not only on young people.

Now, a new study shows that social media consumption may have an impact on brain development.
