Social media, screen time linked to depression in teens, study says - ABC News
For today's youth, taking a selfie is like second nature. But their connections with social media may be skewing their view of their world. Being a teenager is tough already -- is too much screen time making it tougher? A new study shows frequent social media use and television viewing is linked to depression in teens. Previous research has revealed increased rates of depression among teenagers, but researchers at the University of Montreal wanted to determine whether increased screen time could help explain the rise. Researchers followed almost 4, Canadians aged 12 to 16 over four years. Every year, students completed a survey about the amount of time they'd spent in front of digital screens and the specific type of activity they had engaged in -- social media, television, video-gaming or computer use.

The Journal of School Health published a study from survey-based research of students in the 10th grade and concluded that students who weren't dating had significantly higher teacher ratings of social skills and leadership. Additionally, it found that those students also had lower ratings of depression compared to peers who were dating.
