Tell Us Something We Don’t Know
This just in: Facebook stalking can make people depressed.
A study released by Stony Brook University in New York shows that when young teenage girls are given more ways to talk about their romantic problems through electronic means, they are more likely to remain focused on past problems, which can lead to depression.
Higher levels of discussing problems with friends were ‘significantly’ linked with higher levels of depression, according to the report in The Journal of Adolescence.
This result probably applies more generally too. Who hasn’t Googled or Facebooked an ex to see what they are up to? This isn’t healthy behavior, but we do it nonetheless. Any thoughts? Prescriptions?
