Frequent use of social networks has led to a depression
The experiment was made on two groups of students with tracking of their activity in Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.

Recent graduates of the Pennsylvanian university have made an experiment with participation of 143 students. They have shown that long pastime on social networks leads to a depression and feeling of loneliness. Work is published in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology magazine.

according to authors, the previous researches which set the purpose to show communication between a depression and social networks drove participants into unrealistic conditions, forcing them to refuse social networks at all. They have decided to go in other way and to compare a condition of two rndomizirovanny groups.

at the beginning of the experiment psychologists have conducted survey during which they have defined mood and health of volunteers. They have also measured the average time of activity in Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat by means of iPhone statistics. Then in a random way they have divided all 143 participants (from them 108 - girls) into two groups. In the first, served control, students haven't changed the habits and have continued to give to social networks as much of time, as before. Members of the second group spent for each of social networks no more than 10 minutes a day. Such conditions proceeded three weeks.
