Media addiction is getting worse: More and more young people are suffering from social media and gambling addiction

In the pandemic, many teenagers only had their cell phone and PC available for entertainment. This now results in an increased media addiction among children and adolescents.

Hamburg – During the corona pandemic, the number of young people suffering from media addiction increased sharply. In the past two years, more and more children and adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19 have been pathological users of social media and video games. This means that its use has turned into an uncontrolled addiction.
24hamburg.de * reveals exactly how this works and how frighteningly the numbers have risen.

The duration of video game use among children and adolescents has increased from an average of one hour 23 to two hours twelve over the past two years. Social media are now used for over three hours a day; in 2019 it was around two hours.

The number of really addicted teens has also increased dramatically. In 2019, 144,000 children and teenagers in Germany suffered from video game addiction; in 2021 the number will be 219,000. The number of social media addicts has also risen: from 171,000 in 2019 to 246,000 in 2021. Thus, over 4 percent of all German children and adolescents suffer from serious media addiction. * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
