A study published in the journal EclinicalMedicine reveals that girls’ social networks are depressed more than boys. The high rates of depression in girls are associated with the time they spend on social networks compared to boys. In particular, their greater presence on social networks is usually accompanied by online harassment, as well as long sleeplessness, and these factors play an important role in changing the mood of young girls and women.
According to the study, two fifths of girls spend at least three hours a day on social networks, while the figure is one in five boys. Also, one in ten boys never use social networks.
In the end, researchers are advised that balancing the use of social media can bring about a balance in life.
