However, there has not been much research looking for a relationship between social media and quality.
“There are hundreds of these studies, almost all of which show very few results,” said Jeff Hancock, a psychologist at Stanford University who led a meta-analysis of 226 studies.
The main thing is about the new research, says Drs. Hancock, who was not involved in the operation, was his space. Two studies in the UK involved a total of 84,000 people. Some of the studies followed more than 17,000 young people aged 10 to 21, showing how their use of the media is changing and improving their quality of life.
“In terms of scale, it’s very good,” Drs. Hancock said. The financial year review, he added, was a significant improvement over previous studies, which included all the young people. “Young age is not like a normal stage of developmental life – they bring about rapid changes,” he says.
The study found that during adolescence, excessive use of social media predicted a lower level of quality of life one year later. For girls, this critical time is between the ages of 11 and 13, but for boys it is 14 and 15. Drs. Orben said the difference was only for men because girls were more likely to be young than boys.
“We’ve seen that young girls grow more than boys,” said Dr. Orben said. “There are a lot of things that can be a driver, whether it’s social, cognitive or biological.”
Both boys and girls in education had a second heart attack in the media at about 19 years of age. “It’s really surprising because it’s so entrenched among men,” Drs. Orben said. Around those years, he said, many people would go into turmoil – such as starting college, working in a new job or living independently for the first time. – They could change the way they communicate with the online business, he said.
