The Internet Usage Patterns of Depressed College Students

The Internet Usage Patterns of Depressed College Students | CulturaDigital | Scoop.it

A recent study correlates frequent Internet usage with depression. The study also showed specific web habits correlates with being depressed.

 

Thanks to Stewart-Marshall for sharing this link.
Ken's Key take-away:

Frequent switching between applications and sites seems to be a link to depression in this first-ever study.  Late night usage and first thing in the morning are other indicators.

Thanks Ken - and I seem to have so many of these internet indicators - switching, late night, early morning - but I think I'm okay :-) So I guess they are merely "indicators" - not perfect predictors.

Thank you for the rescoop. Color is so important in advertising and I think it is equally important one websites, blogs, etc. It looks like you have a quality site here.
Best wishes,
Ken

The Internet's Battle For Our Digital Souls | Endless Innovation | Big Think | CulturaDigital | Scoop.it

Harvard neuroscience researchers have just confirmed what many of us have suspected all along: social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest are “brain candy” for Internet users. Every status update, every tweet, every pin is a micro-jolt delivered squarely to the pleasure centers of our brains. We get approximately the same type of pleasure from talking about ourselves on social media as we do from having sex.
