Social Media And Depression

Recent studies show that the increasing use of social media platforms are becoming a major cause of depression and anxiety. Today's generation is highly equipped with all the electronic gadgets and they have all time access to the internet and hence they tend to spend more time on that instead of interacting and connecting with their peers in person. This creates a gap of emotional connect between them. After some time they feel isolated because they could not find any one for them with whom they could be emotionally connected with to share their feelings and hence slowly and gradually they move towards depression.

What are your thoughts about this link between increasing use of social media and depression ?
