This paper aimed to study about the influence of online social media use. 2390 voluntary teenagers participated this survey, aged from 11 to 28, 1128 males and 1262 females (Mage=18.29, SD=3.61). This paper took online social media use, self-identity and subjective well-being as latent variables, self-esteem as observed variables, to construct a structural equation model and to discuss their association relationship and mechanism. The results showed that the use of social media online had direct and significant positive effects on self-identity and subjective well-being; but negative relationship with self-esteem; at the same time, online social media use, self-identity, self-esteem and subjective well-being had interrelated associations with each other, especially the mediating effect of self-esteem could positively predict subjective well-being.
