Description: The present research studies the impact of frequency of exposure to screen-based media, i.e., television, Internet, and social networking sites (SNS) on subjective well-being of adolescents in Germany. Based on panel data that covered a period of nine years, we found that frequency of Internet use in general and use of SNS in particular does not affect subjective well-being of adolescents over time. Frequency of exposure to television slightly decreased satisfaction with life of adolescents, but was unrelated to depressive symptomatology. Overall, the findings suggest no deptrimental effects of screen-based media use on adolescents’ well-being. Even if effects were found, they were too small to impact life satisfaction of depression substantially.
