"Social media may reduce depression risk for older people with pain" - Reuters. 10/10/2018.

“Using online social media to maintain contact with family members and friends is a good way to compensate for seniors who restrict their social activities due to pain. It is not going to replace seeing people in person, but it will help supplement their reduced activities,” Ang said in a phone interview with Reuters. The study is being published in the Journals of Gerontology.
