My turn: Social media may lead to stress

Here’s a new term to add to your medical terminology, “Facebook Depression.”

I prefer the term “Facebooked,” as in zoned out.

According to a new study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, blah … blah … blah… You can fill in the blanks.

It’s not rocket science. Teen and tweens and people who think they are — including me sometimes — don’t know when to stop logging in and logging off. The result, stress and or depression, usually because of how the social media is used.

Where is Facebook etiquette? Sounds like a project for next week. I’ll write it — assuming I‘m not too Facebooked — and then share, maybe even on Facebook.

If you can’t wake up in the middle of the night and walk past your computer to go to the restroom without updating your status or seeing whose been on, you’re Facebooked.

Here’s another sobering reality that you’re “Facebooked;” you have 93 Facebook friends, as I do, (probably a low numbers in Facebook terms), and have not been out for a while.

I don’t mean to make too light of a troubling trend, but with anything that has become a big part of our culture, parental monitoring is mandatory for children and for adults, self control.

We don’t need to know your every movement. Now that’s depressing.
