Social media has become a habitual factor of humanity. People make purchases, communicate, create and watch the content while using social media platforms. But how would the social media networks’ lack affect people? The University of Bath has published research about people, who weren’t using the platforms for seven days. Find more news on the GBC Time website.
There were 154 people of age from 18 to 72. They were split into two groups, one of them was completely banned from using any networks, and another was allowed to use everything they wanted to. Participants had to stop using such platforms as TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. The main key result of the research is a decrease in depression and anxiety feelings. Before the research, in regular life, participants used the platforms for 8 hours per week, on average.
The University experts also fixed the depression level for each of the participants, asking the questions. Considering the anxiety level, the experts were controlling people through the General Anxiety Disorder Scale.
All participators who took a break from using the platforms have demonstrated positive results. The general level of depression and anxiety has significantly decreased. Dr. Jeff Lambert of the University Health Department has approved the positive effect on everybody, as well.
The research also includes the data of an average number of UK users. Since 2011, the number of active social media users has grown from 45% to 71% in 2021. 97% of people are aged 16 to 44.
The experts are sure that this report will be helpful in the clinical help related to depression and anxiety disorders.
