The relationship between college student fatigue and social media video consumption is complex. Although watching videos on social networks can be a form of relaxation, excessive consumption can decrease self-control, increasing mental fatigue. The human brain, especially in college students, seeks immediate rewards, making it susceptible to instant gratification from these platforms, leading to mental and physical fatigue. Objective: The study’s objective was to establish the relationship between the fatigue of university students and the consumption of videos on social networks. Method: A non-experimental and cross-sectional quantitative analysis was carried out on 137 first-year students of the Catholic University of Santa Maria de Arequipa, Peru. Results: The analysis suggests that only poor self-control has a significant relationship with fatigue in social networks. At the same time, entertainment and the dissemination of unverified information did not show a significant relationship with fatigue on social networks. Conclusions: Although entertainment, poor self-control, and unverified information dissemination are related to social media fatigue in college students, these variables only partially explain the variability in social media fatigue.
