Scientists have suggested that the frequent use of social networks can lead to mental disorders.
Researchers from Florida found that social media habits are very close in meaning to the so-called vague Facebook posts, called "vague booking", which encrypted a cry for help. In most cases, such posts contain speculations about suicide.
According to experts, these statuses suggest that the author of such messages has obvious mental abnormalities, which were provoked by the financial situation or problems in the family.
Chloe Berryman, who leads the study, said researchers surveyed 467 young people about social media and their personal experiences.
In particular, they were asked how much time they spend on social networks, for what purpose they use them, and what role they play in their lives.
The results showed no significant or consistent links between social media and self-reported signs of psychological disorder.
Another study suggested that "adolescents are increasingly exposed to risk factors arising from the use of new technologies such as cyberbullying and the use of problematic social networks."
At the same time, experts agree that family and financial situations are more likely to lead to thoughts of suicide than social networks.
