Passion for social networks leads to narcissism and psychological problems

A new scientific study on the impact of social media on the minds of users showed that social media enthusiasm leads to antisocial behavior, narcissism and psychological problems.

In a presentation titled "How Social Networks Can Help and Harm Our Children" at the American Psychological Association's 119th Annual Conference, Dr. Rosen presented her findings based on research involving 1000 teenagers, Macdigger writes.

So, the “overdose” of Facebook, as well as other social networks, leads to the development of psychological disorders in children, including narcissism, anxiety and depression. In addition to these side effects, active users of social networks revealed tendencies to antisocial behavior, mania and a number of other aggressive trends.

American doctors warn that after registering on a social network, people may begin to experience real depression. The so-called “ignore” in the network can be more dangerous for children than if it were ignored by friends in real, not virtual life.

American experts have even suggested adding Facebook depression to the list of diseases as a potential threat associated with social media. "Facebook depression" is a condition, according to scientists, into which people who are addicted to this site fall.

Being in a child’s social network is even worse than sitting alone in a crowded school canteen or any other place of a mass gathering of his peers in real life. The thing is that Facebook distorts the view of the real state of things. With virtual communication, a person does not have the opportunity to see facial expressions or read non-verbal gestures of the interlocutor.

Facebook helps strengthen social communication among balanced children, and at the same time can cause the exact opposite effect in people prone to depression, the American psychotherapist concluded.
