Social Media Therapy

The virtual community becomes a place to seek advice

Implications - Social media is not only becoming more accessible, but is also providing users with a means for more in-depth interaction. Users are reaching out to their online “friends” and other online community members for advice on everyday problems and even serious issues. With the convenience of finding therapeutic relief online, individuals may decide to consult their real-world peers less often.
