Social media has positive and negative impacts on human life. Even though negative impacts have been identified, positive impacts are rarely studied in the literature. The identification of positive impacts will be useful for preventing health issues among social media users. Therefore, the study is intended to investigate the psychological well-being status of the social media population. The study used a cross-sectional design with a purposive sampling method. The analysis used structural equational modeling to answer the research question of the study. The results showed the psychological well-being of social media users is at normal levels with mild stress. The influencing factors influencing the finding are sex and education. Health promotion is fundamental to improving the outcomes and vice versa, decreasing the risk factors of mental disorders. Interventional studies are needed to prevent distress in the future.
