Social networking is really can cause severe dependence. So say psychologists from the University of Bristol. Over the past decade from entertainment social network has become a real obsession for many people. Virtual communication has become a substitute for real.
Scientists tried to establish what happens in the brain of people with dependence on social networks. It turned out that the excessive use of the benefits of the Internet leads to reduced brain and create an artificial need to constantly maintain virtual communication. The present communication thus comes to naught, which is extremely dangerous for mental health.
Psychologists recommend that people spend more time in the fresh air and see real friends. It's hard to say, cause social networks a reduction of the brain. Scientists believe this process was started in ancient times. However, the changes in the psyche under the influence of information overload and constant virtual communication do occur.
