In today’s era, social media is a major contributor to our lives. Everyone likes spending time on social media. But in the meantime, there are reports which girls will be surprised to hear. If girls spend more time on social media then they can become victims of depression. Its use increases the risk of depression.
According to a Survey, researchers led by Yvonne Kelly of University College London (UCL) found that nearly 40 percent of the girls who spend more than five hours in a day on social media show signs of depression. This rate is very low in boys. Among them, it is less than 15 percent.
The Guardian said in reference to Wesley’s statement that the researcher cannot definitely say that the use of social media has a negative effect on mental health, but the evidence has begun to point out in this direction. In this, the research team has included interviews with about 11,000 people aged 14 years old.
