The national health service in the UK warns that selfies can cause the development of depression among women. This happens due to the lack of attention to her person in social networks and a small number of likes.
Statistics on mental illness is depressing scientists. Since 2007, the number of mentally ill in the country increased by 21%. Moreover, according to the latest data, every fourth young girl aged 15 to 24 years has a tendency to depression.
To put a selfie on the first place among the factors provoking mental disorder, the researchers do not intend to. However, the social network is one of the components of a great stress that falls on the shoulders of modern man. As a result, the lack of comments and likes may be the last straw for the development of depression, although the main cause of the disease, of course, is different.
