    There are a few key psychological factors that drive people's use of social media platforms:

    - Social interaction - Social media allows people to connect with others, share experiences, and feel like they are part of a community. This satisfies basic human needs for belonging and relationships.

    - Self-presentation - Social media provides a platform for people to carefully curate an online persona and image. This allows them to present an idealised version of themselves.

    - Feedback and validation - Likes, comments, shares etc. provide forms of positive feedback that make people feel validated and recognised nized. This can be rewarding and addictive.

    - FOMO (fear of missing out) - Seeing updates from friends and family creates a fear of being left out of experiences and events. This motivates ongoing social media use.

    - Curiosity and information - Social media provides a constant stream of new information and content, which appeals to people's curiosity. Staying updated becomes addictive.

    - Entertainment - People enjoy the fun and humorous aspects of social media. It provides amusement during downtime.

    - Comparison - Viewing highly curated content from others facilitates social comparison, both upward and downward, which shapes self-perceptions.

    In summary, major psychological drivers include fulfilling social needs, seeking self-presentation and validation, entertainment, curiosity, as well as social comparison and competition for status. But excessive use can negatively impact wellbeing. Moderation is key.
