*Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The **Atlantic *:

If you were going to give advice for a happy adolescence based on this
survey, it would be straightforward: Put down the phone, turn off the
laptop, and do something—anything—that does not involve a screen. Of
course, these analyses don’t unequivocally prove that screen time causes
unhappiness; it’s possible that unhappy teens spend more time online. But
recent research suggests that screen time, in particular social-media use,
does indeed cause unhappiness. One study asked college students with a
Facebook page to complete short surveys on their phone over the course of
two weeks. They’d get a text message with a link five times a day, and
report on their mood and how much they’d used Facebook. The more they’d
used Facebook, the unhappier they felt, but feeling unhappy did not
subsequently lead to more Facebook use.
