Online Social Networking and Mental Health by Igor Pantic

I read an article on Online Social Networking and Mental Health by Igor Pantic. I strongly believe the covered pointed by the author — whether its networking addiction, increasing showcasing of self esteem and symptoms of depression. The author also presented opposite results in terms of positive impact of social networking on self-esteem and relationship between SNS use and mental problems to this day remains controversial, and research on this issue is faced with numerous challenges. This concise review focuses on the recent findings regarding the suggested connection between SNS and mental health issues such as depressive symptoms, changes in self-esteem, and Internet addiction.

It is still unclear that whether some of these changes affect normal aspects of human behavior and cause psychiatric disorders or not.
