the internet generation

Interesting finding about the effects of social media:

The article says:

“All the research she read showed that the more you use social media as a young woman the unhappier you are.”

“The reason seems to be that people are forever posting pictures that are happy pictures. When you are alone and you look at everyone at the party pouting for the camera you tend to think: all those people are happy – why aren’t I? There is a clear link between that feeling and the other depressive behaviours and eating disorders.”
