The survey showed that the greatest danger is Instagram application. Its active use led to increased anxiety, poor sleep and the appearance of a sense of their own inadequacy. Total Instagram was sharply negative assessments on 7 indicators. The second “honorable” place went Snapchat-in. Scientists themselves see this as a direct relationship, as both a resource “incarcerated” under the image that makes a person feel inferior when viewing photos of other people.
Twitter and Facebook do not have such a negative effect, even though, according to the findings, they also did not lead to peace of mind. But YouTube recognized the “positive” resource: he got a good score on nine points, although not contribute to good sleep. It is said that the authors of the study as a whole set themselves very negatively in relation to social networks, arguing that they increase anxiety.
