We examined whether participants’ demographics, envy, and self-worth significantly predicted social media misuse among a sample of 307 college students in the U.S. The results of a hierarchical multiple regression analysis indicated six predictor variables contributed 26% of the variance observed in students’ social media misuse. We discuss implications for college counselling practice and directions for future research, specifically further research of the nuanced experiences of college students who identify as religious, Black, and Latinx.
