KU researcher suggests social media not so bad
A University of Kansas researcher who led a study on social media says giving it up doesn’t make a person significantly happier and concerns about social media may be overblown.  

Communications professor Jeffrey Hall said that he was surprised by the finding.  

Some participants abstained from social media from one to four weeks while a control group continued normal use and reported an average of 72 minutes a day. The study followed 135 people, with most from Kansas.  

Hall said there doesn’t seem to be a lot of evidence that social media replaces face-to-face interactions. He said people who spent less time perusing social media spent more time on the internet, working, taking care of their children, cooking and cleaning. –AP
