Social media and mental health/depression


So the study found no link at all
between the time spent on social media and depression or anxiety. And I think it
was surprising, it went against our hypothesis, went against the public debate, but then when I really jumped into the issue and was really thoughtful about it,
it makes total sense. There’s so many things you can do on a screen. It all
depends on the way that you use it and that’s any screen, a television screen,
you know, video games, anything. So I’m hoping that this study moves the
conversation beyond the screen time debate because you can do so much on
your screen. You can build people up, you can tear people down, right, you can be
happy, you can be sad, you can connect, you can disconnect. It’s really the way that
you use it.
