    Low levels of face-to-face social contact 'can double depression risk'

    Replacing face-to-face contact with friends and family with emails, text messages and phone calls could double the risk of depression, a major study suggests.

    Bweare the Paradox of the Heap. If 10K is too many, is 5K too many, is 1K too many, ... is one anti-government post too many? You must be disarmed in the name of political correctness.

    If I make it to 70, the last thing I will want to do is socialize with folks my age, too old and set in their way...depressing.

    Socialize with younger folks, too young and not respecting that I am now set in my ways...depressing.

    The most rewarding conversations that I have are conversations with myself...not depressing.

    Study Finds Teens Check Social Media Sites Up to 100 Times a Day

    "As the debate over whether or not mobile phones should be allowed in the classroom rages on, a new study from CNN on social media and teens found that 13-year-olds can check social media sites up to 100 times a day, indicating a heavy dependence due to the need for approval."

    From the post #1 linked URL
    Researchers reported that having more or fewer phone conversations, or written or email contact, had no effect on depression.

    Dr Alan Teo, lead author and assistant professor of psychiatry at Oregon Health and Science University, said: "We found that all forms of socialisation aren't equal. Phone calls and digital communication, with friends or family members, do not have the same power as face-to-face social interactions in helping to stave off depression."

    The study found that, at different ages, participants benefited from different relationships. The researchers found that among adults aged 50 to 69, frequent face-to-face contact with friends reduced the risk of subsequent depression.
    Today I went to the fuel station to order 250 gallons of propane, the post office to pick-up held mail, the electric power coop to drop off meter reading and payment, and the grocery store - four errands took two hours for the chats along the way. Small town living is great. Oh, BTB, I was armed throughout.
