Social Media: Social Technology Self-Assessment Checklist

  • How many social media apps are you currently using? If possible, try to limit yourself to one.
  • How much time are you spending on social media? Be honest. Research indicates that anything over two hours a day means increased risk of harmful effects.
  • What kind of content are you posting on social media? In ten years’ time, would you and/or your children feel comfortable with your present posts?
  • What kind of content captures your attention? Why do you find it attractive?
  • Is technology helping or distracting you? If it’s a distraction, what steps can you take to fix the problem?
  • Is your involvement on social media helping you be more authentic as a human being, or is it causing you to create a fake you?
  • Is technology bringing your family closer together, or is it creating separation? How can you address the problem as a family?
