"In a study to be published in a forthcoming issue of IEEE Technology and Society Magazine, we and our colleagues found that students who showed signs of depression tended to use the Internet differently from those who showed no symptoms of depression."

- That never got to a point. I still do not know what they were saying and I am not stupid.....Jun 16, 2012
- They were saying for example that depressed people most likely frequently switch the things they were doing on their PC like switching between games, watching a video. All with a certain timespan because of the inability to concentrate properly.Jun 16, 2012
- I think then it is flawed and using the wrong test group. I have not had a student( in that age category and I taught college/university) that had much of an attention span to begin with depressed or not. Now I know I am being treated for depression and PTSD, & my habits on the internet are diametrically opposite to the studies conclusions. I wish they would use real adults, college students are about as immature as they come with a few(less than 1%) exceptions. My god they still binge drink.......not a mature thing to do......Jun 16, 2012
