As per a research being taken out to dispute another research's findings, it has been revealed that Facebook does not cause depression among youngsters. The latter research, which was being taken out by a group of researchers from the University of Wisconsin, decided to take up the subject, after they got to know about research findings being released by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The American Academy of Pediatrics concluded in their research that Facebook caused depression. Wisconsin researchers were not convinced with the fact and decided to reinvestigate the matter.
They surveyed 190 students from the University of Wisconsin. All were aged between 18 and 23, and were asked questions in regard to their internet usage. Some of the questions being asked by them were sites, which they commonly surf on the net, and duration for which they remain on net and for many days a week, they get online.
After assessing all the facts, it was revealed that there were very few students, who remain logged on to Facebook for about two hours and even if they have remained then there was no scope of depression on them.
"Parents don't have to be overly concerned [as long as] their child's behavior and mood haven't changed, they have friends and their school work is consistent", further affirmed Moreno.
