Does use of Facebook CAUSE serious mental health problems in a significant number of adolescents?

In recent years there has been intense controversy about the impact of social media on adolescents. One company in particular–Facebook–has been scrutinized. A former employee, Frances Haugen, gave some highly publicized testimony before Congress. Many others from all parts of the political spectrum have weighed in. I want you to research this issue and objectively assess what blame can legitimately attributed to Facebook. We have been studying causal issues for quite a while, and what we have here is basically a question of causation: Does use of Facebook CAUSE serious mental health problems in a significant number of adolescents? There are other questions you might also want to discuss, such as: Did Facebook deliberately overlook and conceal these problems? To the extent that these problems exist, what steps should Facebook take?There are an endless variety of news stories and opinions on the web for you to research. Try to get started as soon as possible reading and thinking about this.
