The study revealed that people who work an hour daily over their smartphone are more likely to be suffering from depression. It mean the more time on smartphone, the more chances of developing depression in the person. Whereas those who were free of depression were those who were not obsessed by these smartphones and used these gadgets occasionally. Say for less than 17 minutes a day. The data was taken from the individual smartphones and the minutes they spent on their smartphones and their social activities. The study interviewed 28 people with an average age of 28 years and these people were also asked to install a purple robot apps which could help the scientists to get required data for two weeks. The application used for this purpose has accuracy chances of 87%.
GPS system made the scientists to track the people about their activities. The depressed people were cut off from their social life and abandoned going out of home. Such people try to remain away from people, they even avoid to think about their pains, bad events and troubles in their life. They lose motivation and control on their problems which cause trouble in their lives. So conclusion of research was that use of smartphones is disturbing our social life structure and how we behave with our problems. Hence, more use may put bad impact on our health and may create depression.
