Facebook overuse leads to psychological disorders in youth
Posted by Staff
ZD Net reports:

As Facebook’s dominance continues to grow, we are starting to realize the impact it is having on society, particularly on youth. Dr. Larry Rosen, a professor of psychology at California State University, Dominguez Hills, researches how technology impacts youth.

Over the weekend, Rosen presented his study at the 119th American Psychological Association convention in Washington DC. His findings are based on survey responses from computer-based surveys distributed to 1,000 urban adolescents and his own 15-minute observations of 300 teenagers that were studying.

“While nobody can deny that Facebook has altered the landscape of social interaction, particularly among young people, we are just now starting to see solid psychological research demonstrating both the positives and the negatives,” Rosen said. In a presentation titled “Poke Me: How Social Networks Can Both Help and Harm Our Kids,” he said his research found both negative and positive influences linked to social networking.
