Research . . . Social Media Causes Depression

There has been quite a bit of research on the adverse impacts of social media on well-being. The most recent research focused on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. With more social media use, symptoms of depression are likely to occur. And those who are already depressed can expect the condition to worsen with more social media use. Researchers don’t advocate giving up social media, but they do strongly suggest limiting screen time to improve mental health. This free time should be used to reduce loneliness by socializing and interacting with friends offline.
