Abstract

Depression is a highly prevalent public health challenge and a major cause of disability across the globe.

  • Annually 6.7% of Americans (that is, more than 16 million).
  • Traditional approaches to curb depression involve survey·based methods via phone or online questionnaires.
  • Large temporal gaps and cognitive bias.

Social media provides a method for learning users' feelings, emotions, behaviors, and decisions in real-time.
