Social Media and Depression

As I already mentioned, social media in particular create addiction because of the dopamine release. The problem with this is that like any addiction – it is very harmful. Many studies find links between depression and time spent on social media[1]. People learn to evaluate their worth based on the number of likes they get and increasingly suffer from seeing that someone’s else life always looks better on pictures.
