This study investigates the relationship between social media usage and two critical aspects of well-being among young adults: self-esteem and sleep quality. Using a sample of 120 participants aged 18-26, data was collected. We employed Bergen Social Media Addiction Scale, the RosenBerg Self Esteem Scale (RSES) and the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Results revealed Positive correlation between social media usage and self esteem but a negative correlation between social media usage and sleep quality. These findings provided deeper insights into the mechanisms underlying these associations, fear of missing out (FOMO), and disrupted sleep patterns due to late-night scrolling. This research underscores the need for strategies to promote mindful social media consumption and enhance well-being among young adults in the digital age.
