With the advancement of technology in the 21st century, digital usage has become more prevalent in society that the younger generations are now growing up in the presence of technological innovations. Because of this, researchers have tried to study the impact of digital technology on the social well-being of not just the youth, but people of all ages as well. This study observed the effects of digital technology on the social well-being of young adults–ages 18-25. Many studies have been conducted observing a generalized usage of digital technology on social well-being. With how advanced digital communication has become and how efficient young adults are able to use such digital modes for communication, studies have shown some disconnect when it comes to social well-being and development. This study specifically examined how communicating and connecting through digital technology affects social well-being in young adults.
