The journal Depression and Anxiety published research from the University of Pittsburgh school of Medicine in Pennsylvania, US, linking the use of social media to depression. A total of 1,787 adults in the US aged 19-32 were surveyed about their social media usage on sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest, Vine and LinkedIn.
Of the participants, more than 25% had high indicators of depression, with those who checked their social media more often being more likely to be depressed than those who checked it less.
