This is how social media affects your brain
Social media is basically a daily thing for our lives, study shows what it does to our brain.
30 years before people would just leave their home with keys and wallet and no smartphone. This kind of lifestyle seems so interesting to us now considering how social media became a daily thing fos us. We use it without thinking but let's take a look what it does to our brain.
Ever since social media came to our lives it changed everything, how we communicate, how we see the world and everything. We became addicted without even noticing it. No doubt it also affects our brain as well.
According to the findings of the study, frequent use of social media by young adolescents between the ages of 12 and 13 may be linked to changes in the way their brains develop over the course of three years. Teenagers' brains became more sensitive to social feedback when they checked social media more than 15 times per day.
Using social media, seeing comments and likes puts our brain in a constant state of multitasking. Also how social media apps are shaped is also quite addicting. Comparing your life on social media also can give you depression because users will start to compare their life with what they see online which is also far from the truth.
