Research FMP

During my Research finding out the negatives of social media i was wondering if their could be any claimed benefits to mental health, and found the following.

Argued Benefits to Mental Health

  • Social connections reduce depression and anxiety.
  • Facebook and social media can be helpful for people suffering from social anxiety as they provide the opportunity to develop social relationships on-line without the stress that face-to-face interactions provoke.
  • Facebook connectedness is associated with lower depression and anxiety and greater satisfaction with life
  • Facebook boasts numerous mutual support groups for people struggling with difficult circumstances; particularly useful for people who do not live in areas where meetings are scheduled or are more likely to participate in an online platform due to privacy concerns.
