This is nothing new because people tend to show things which don't really exist and other people get depressed when they do not have those things. For instance, a couple may keep fighting the entire day, but would post pictures with each other in a very loving way and people get jealous of this. Well, at this age, people must have brains to not take everything on social media so seriously.

The secret history of Facebook depression

Coming soon:

Posting facebook memes makes you stupid

To early users, the internet held such promise for people and communities. Now, on the eve of Facebook's 15th birthday, social media is making people depressed. What happened?


Since it launched in 2004, Facebook has been working to "give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected."
This sounds great. But is it, actually?
Does connecting with everyone you've ever met ever on Facebook make you happy? Does sharing everything with them on Facebook make you jump out of your seat with joy? Probably not.
In fact, if the research is any indication, you may actually be finding Facebook and other social media sites aren't so great for your mental health. Instead of feeling blissfully open and connected with your friends, you feel inadequate or maybe even a bit depressed.
Is social media making us sad because technology is inherently alienating? Is Facebook actually just evil?
We've been asking questions about technology like this for a rather long time. But the answer is a bit more complicated.

I enjoy Facebook but I also have it set up so that I use it, not have it use me.
I've turned off my newsfeed for one so that I only see what I want to see.
It's a great connector tool but I can see how people will let it take the steering wheel if they are not careful.
