Abstract

Social media is a powerful force in our modern-day world with several published studies that suggest negative consequences due to its extended use. This experiment scrutinizes whether social media affects creativity by investigating how short-term exposure to social media impacts an individual's capacity for creative thought, as measured by the Guilford Alternate Uses Test and the Remote Associations Test. Results suggest no statistically significant difference on the Guilford Alternate Uses Test while the Remote Associations Test performance appears to be impacted. Limitations of the experimental design, such as questionnaires used and further areas of study topics are suggested.
