The damaging effects of digital depression
Digital depression has become a real problem among internet users and it continues to rise steadily over the years. For example if you should go on social media right now or other forums.

The best advice I would give to persons who always got caught up into digital depression is to give social media a break from time to time.
Because at the end of the day it’s not going amount to nothing. I don’t see any sense in arguing with someone you don’t know.
