Social Media Use in Teens Linked to Poor Sleep, Anxiety

I don’t have a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, nor any other social media account. I have long thought social media takes away from true social interaction. Talking on the phone, meeting in person, and sharing experiences are replaced with 160 character tweets, terse text messages, and Instagram posts of where I am but you are not. With social media comes less social interaction and, according to the study cited in the article, depression. A strange irony indeed.

Go talk to someone today. Use complete sentences. Have dialogue. Be merry.
