This generation spends most of their leisure time on social media! That being said, the main medium of entertainment at present is social media.
Who wore what, who played what, where did they go, what did they give in status, or what issue is going on?
Even any news nowadays is available on social media before television or radio.
But scientists claim that the mental problems of this generation are increasing due to the constant presence on social media.
One study found that spending too much time on social media can lead to depression.
Spending too much time on social sites like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, or Twitter can have an impact on mental health, say US researchers.
However, this is not the first study. There have been several studies and studies on social media and its impact and exactly how much time should be spent on social networks.
Much of this has been about the time young children spend on social media and the impact of social networks on them.
Experiments have shown that this medium affects everyone, but it is not known whether it causes depression.
According to Brian A. Primack, a physician at the University of Arkansas, there is a subtle difference between the use of social networks and the resulting mental health problems and depression, which is not easy to figure out.
However, most surveys say that social networks leads to emotional exhaustion.
There is also a conflict between what should be put first in this case or what should be put first in social networks and mental depression.
However, the new study claims that depression does not affect social media use in the same way.
But if someone uses more social networks, then fatigue can be created.
The study, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, collected data from thousands of people between the ages of 18 and 30.
A specific questionnaire is used to try to understand the state of their mental depression and each of them is asked about the total time they use social networks.
If so, shouldn’t more than two hours be spent on social media?
The study found that younger people who spend time more than two hours on social media are 2.6 percent more likely to suffer from depression within six months than those who spend time more than five hours a day on social networks.
Many things are also specified as the reason for this. For example, many people spend time on social networks instead of spending time with relationships, work, and family.
It has an impact on me. As well as people can become self-centered.
This leaves the possibility of increasing mental problems. Brian A. Primack said about it, everyone is spending time like themselves now because of Corona.
Social distance has increased. As a result, social networks and mental depression are more important at this time.
There are many benefits to being temporarily influenced by technology.
Many things are at hand today but its excessive use is of no benefit at all!
