Blogging may lower anxiety in teens

A new study suggests blogging appears to help teens deal with social problems.

Researchers looked at 161 Israeli high school students who had some level of social anxiety or distress.

They found that those assigned to blog for 10 weeks saw significant improvements in self-esteem, and reduced social anxiety and emotional distress compared to those who wrote in a diary or did nothing.

The greatest improvements were seen in teens whose blogs were open to comments.
