A influência das redes sociais on-line no surgimento de sintomas depressivos entre os jovens

Resumo

As redes sociais on-line são, hodiernamente, grandes ferramentas de comunicação e entretenimento, responsáveis por otimizar diversas tarefas. Apesar de seus benefícios, esses ambientes virtuais são constantemente correlacionados com a piora da saúde mental. O objetivo desta pesquisa bibliográfica foi investigar a influência das redes sociais on-line com o aparecimento de comportamentos depressivos entre os jovens. Foi realizada uma busca por artigos científicos nas bases de dados Embase, PubMed, PyscInfo e Web of Science, por intermédio da combinação dos descritores “on-line social networks”, “depression” e “adolescent”. Após a análise dos artigos encontrados, e considerando critérios de inclusão e exclusão, foram selecionados 11 estudos para compor esta revisão. Grande parte dos estudos mencionaram o excesso de tempo voltado às redes sociais pelos jovens, relacionando sintomas de depressão, ansiedade e estresse. Outrossim, foi encontrado uma grande atividade de comparação social nessas mídias digitais, responsável por propiciar a diminuição de autoestima e o aumento de comportamentos narcisistas. Posto isso, conclui-se que o intenso apego às redes sociais on-line pode acometer o aparecimento de condutas depressivas no público jovem.
