Online life and social networks can be a real downer. Sometimes watching other people's lives on social media is depressing or stressful. It can even cause you to feel jealous, inferior, and depressed. A study from the American Psychological Association states that more than five hours at a time on a computer can simulate depression in the brain. Having good friends means that the online world can fade away as you spend time in person with the people you really care about the most. You must always put your real social life before the virtual one.
