Psychologists of the Pennsylvanian university by results of a research came to such conclusion, MarketWatch writes. Psychologists came to a conclusion that users who sharply reduce the amount of time given to social networks like Facebook or Instagram after that often feel emotional lift. "It was surprising. During three weeks we came to a conclusion that the level of a depression and loneliness sharply decreased at people who limited use (social networks)" — professor of psychology of the Pennsylvanian university Melissa Hunt under the leadership of whom there took place the research noted. She added that people with a clinical depression participated in a research. After reduction of use of social networks within several weeks they had only poorly expressed depression symptoms. The research affected 143 students of the Pennsylvanian university, scientists monitored change in their mood and feeling of wellbeing. Part of them reduced use of social networks to 10 minutes a day for each of the websites: Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Others continued to use them in the habitual mode. Result: those who began to use less social networks experienced considerable decrease in level of a depression and loneliness while the depression from control group remained with users at the previous level. The research also showed that Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat not only are popular among depressive and lonely people who, in opinion Hunt, try to leave the state by means of these websites, but they also do these users even more depressive and lonely.
