University of Essex researchers discovered that people who saw bad Covid-related news while on social media experienced an “immediate and significant” reduction in happiness. They claimed that this could happen in two to four minutes, but that if people looked for posts that showed acts of kindness instead, they would be less likely to be in a bad mood. “Even a few minutes of exposure to Covid-related news on social media can ruin a person’s mood,” the team, led by psychologist Dr. Kathryn Buchanan, said. “We should all be aware of these effects and consider balancing our doom-scrolling with some kindness-scrolling.”

According to the study, 1,000 people were polled about how they felt after reading or watching Covid news on social media. They discovered that getting information from Twitter or YouTube was associated with a decrease in positivity and made people feel less optimistic.
