Is spending lots of time on social media good or bad for your mental health? Mostly bad, according to a comprehensive new study by the Royal Society for Public Health in the U.K. The Society looked into many different aspects of social media’s effect, especially on those between the ages of 14 and 24.
The study found that spending time on social media can be beneficial in some ways, such as helping those with physical or mental health issues find useful information and connect with others facing similar problems. It can also help users find emotional support, a community, and greater opportunities for self-expression.
