A new study reveals: Social media increases feelings of depression in adolescents Does social media increase feelings of frustration in teenagers? A question answered by a recent British study published in the journal Nature Communications... What was its answer?  A recent British study published in the journal Nature Communications showed that the longer the time 11-13-year-olds spent on social media, the more likely it was that they weren't satisfied with their lives .  The study found similar results in boys between the ages of 14 and 15 as well as boys and girls at the age of 19, according to the BBC.  The study included 72,000 people, who were asked to answer a question about their life satisfaction and the length of time they spent communicating with their friends on social media on a typical day in a survey conducted seven times between 2011 and 2018.  The network said that scientists believe that the weakness of boys and girls in front of social media at a certain age, may be related to the brain and hormonal and social changes that occur during puberty, as they put it.  The network quoted researchers from the universities of Oxford and Cambridge and the Donders Institute for Brain and Behavioral Studies, as saying that social media companies should share more of their data with scientists to allow for more research.  However, senior researcher Amy Urban, said that the link between social media and mental health is very complex, as different studies have reached different results.
