However, the sharing of personal life, feelings or problems will affect the state of mental health (wellbeing). This study examined the effect of social media use to the condition of psychological wellbeing after the activity was performed. The research data was collected using ZSAI inventory (Zadrian Social-Media Addiction Inventory) with the sample consists of 326 people. Data analysis was performed by using Rasch model analysis. The analysis on the research results shows that there is a significant relationship between the usages of social media with the condition of individual subjective well-being.

Nevertheless, the social media users tend to feel addicted and lost productivity by using it.
