Heavy social media users trapped in endless cycle of depression
“The more time young adults spend on social media, the more likely they are to become depressed, a study has found.
Of the 19 to 32-year-olds who took part in the research, those who checked social media most frequently throughout the week were 2.7 times more likely to develop depression than those who checked least often.
The 1,787 US participants used social media for an average 61 minutes every day, visiting accounts 30 times per week. Of them a quarter were found to have high indicators of depression.”
