“Alarming Study Reveals Post-Millennium Generation’s Addiction to ‘Rails’ Videos”

Disturbing statistics revealed by a new study, regarding the post-millennium generation’s addiction to short videos or the so-called “Rails”, while parents live in confusion about how to deal with this matter.

Addiction to phones and tablet screens has become normal for adults before children, especially in a rapid technological era and increasing reliance on artificial intelligence technologies, and perhaps this justifies the addiction of “Generation Z” or the post-millennium generation, to “Reels” videos on social media platforms.

What is new in this study?

What is shocking about the results of the new American study is that it revealed alarming statistics regarding adolescent addiction to Rails videos. Results included:

  • 60 percent of young people are addicted to Real Communication platforms for 3 consecutive hours a day, which then makes them feel sad and guilty, and feels that their time is wasted.
  • All social media platforms are designed to keep users engaged, because they include engaging features such as infinite scrolling, auto-play, and personalized and age-based content.
  • This strategy works very successfully with generations between the ages of 8 and 23.
  • Rails addiction affects students’ concentration, attention span and concentration in general.
  • 65 percent of the students also felt guilty after long periods of watching the video, especially during exams.

Study: The Post-Millennial Generation’s Addiction to Short Videos

  • “These short videos work on the flow of the dopamine hormone and thus give a feeling of temporary happiness, which the person seeks, as in the case of an addict.”
  • “After watching these videos, the child returns to reality, and here a gap occurs in the brain, because the dopamine hormone responsible for feeling happy stops flowing, and is replaced by anxiety, stress and anger.”
  • “The feeling of guilt also overwhelms these teenagers greatly, especially when they take advantage of the time that was allocated to study, to watch the rails, and they are not able to accomplish what is required of them.”
