Social Media Psychology References

As a result of the large number of social psychology and mental health references in my book Social Media Psychology, I couldn’t include all of them in the book. Therefore, this webpage contains all the references for the book.

Social Media Psychology is a fascinating, enthralling psychology book exploring the mental health, social psychology and cognitive psychology impacts of social media. If you want to find out more, click the image below.

Also the book is available from all major eBook retailers and you can order the paperback and hardback copies from Amazon, your local bookstore and local library, if you request it. Also, you can buy the eBook directly from me at
