Depression and Facebook
“It’s like they don’t feel comfortable enough to say it in person but they really want someone to reach out to them… It’s easier to talk about it on Facebook where you’re not directly complaining to someone. And then if someone wants to help you they will.”
“If I was a close friend I would definitely say something. But I know there are people that have all these friends on Facebook and talk to them maybe once a year. If they had something in their status update I wouldn’t really think anything of it because I don’t really know them.”
Depression and Twitter
The purpose of this study was to examine if and how the topic of depression is being discussed on Twitter.
