Google is not solely to blame, though.
A very interesting infographic was recently released by Forensic Psychology, pointing out how the excessive daily usage of internet is negatively affecting our brains.
One of the most interesting things pointed out was how in the past people used to remember things they didn’t know about (after researching said information from various resources) but now that Google has answers for everything, we don’t try to remember. We just know where to search the info again. Multitasking also stresses us out, diminishing our creative problem-solving capacity. And despite our heavy usage of social networking, it seems that internet users are 2.5 times more likely to be depressed than people who interact with each other over phone or face to face.
