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.

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.
