(+263...4) asks does social media cause depression😥?
Yes, current studies do show that social media causes depression - not in all but in some. In particular, people who compare themselves to others on social media, passively consume social media, and are addicted to social media are more likely to experience negative effects. On the other hand, users with lots of followers who post actively on social media (especially pictures of themselves with friends) tend to be less depressed. Always keep in mind that people post the highlights of their lives on social media, so their lives are probably not as exciting as they seem. If you find yourself endlessly browsing social media instead of actively participating in life, look away from that screen, and do something else!
