The More Time Young Adults Use Popular Social Media, The Greater The Link To Depression

HealthDay (3/24, Mozes) reports, “The more time young adults spend using popular social media, the greater the link to depression,” the findings of a 1,800-participant study funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in the April 1 issue of the journal Depression and Anxiety suggest. Researchers found that “when social media patterns were stacked up against depression status…those who used social media the most were about 2.7 times more likely to be depressed than those who used such forums the least.”
