Researchers Link Internet Behavior to Depressive Symptoms


Researchers claim to know how depressed people spend time online. Some of that "depressive" behavior included frequent email checking and sharing many files such as music and movies.

216 college students were asked to complete a questionnaire to identify such behavior. Then, the university’s information technology department provided the researchers with campus Internet usage data from the participants.

It is assumed that a monitoring software installed on PCs could help identify symptoms of depression. "It could be a cost-effective way to prompt people to seek medical help early," the researchers stated.
