With the rapid adaptation of technologies around the world, people spend more and more time on mobile phones and computers and become addicted to them. One of the main reasons people (especially teenagers) are addicted to mobile phones is because of social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram. Although social media has had a positive impact on the world, it is well known that excessive use of social media can have a negative impact on your mental health. Research published in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology shows that mental health status is directly related.
In terms of social media, the study included 143 young people from the University of Pennsylvania, divided into A and B categories. Group A should restrict the use of social networks, while group B should restrict the use of social networks. The results are clear: The mental health of group A who restricts social media use is much better than that of group B, and the students in group A who have previously had symptoms of loneliness and depression showed a decline. The NPR science team believes that Facebook is one of the reasons for the soaring suicide rate among teenagers. Experts believe that Facebook is trying to hide the connection between social media and depression.
This topic is very sensitive to Facebook because they are gradually turning to a younger audience. Facebook plans to create another version of Instagram for children under 13. A team of 40 prosecutors called Facebook to reconsider their ideas and said it could have a negative impact on the nature of children’s buildings. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) talked about the NPR investigation at a congressional hearing in March. He said that the study is inconclusive because it is difficult to collect objective data when researchers disagree with him.
NPR spokesperson Katie Castor said that Facebook is using outdated liability protection measures and has taken half of the measures to benefit from the factors that make Facebook healthier for people and the mental health of billions of people. Strangers and stopping aimless scrolling will completely destroy Facebook’s business model. They have expanded the use of social media, but McMorris Rogers believes that when their motivation is to sell ads on an interactive basis, Facebook pays more attention to their bottom line.
