According to a survey, the more time 11-13 year old girls spend on social media, the less satisfied they are with life after one year.

The study, conducted in the UK and published in Nature Communications, found similar results for 14-15 year old boys and 19 year old girls and boys.

Scientists believe that sensitivity to the effects of social media at a certain age may be associated with brain, hormonal and social changes during adolescence.

Further research is needed to fully understand and prove the link.
