Abstract

Facebook has become a rapidly increasing popular social networking site, providing new methods of interaction and presentation. The rapid accumulation in research has suggested an association between Facebook use, individual differences and well-being factors. This current study explored the effects of narcissism, self-esteem and perceived stress on Facebook intensity. In particular focusing on grandiose and vulnerable narcissism facets. Using a non-experimental correlation design, the criterion variable was Facebook intensity and the predictor variables were grandiose and vulnerable narcissism, self-esteem and perceived stress. Participants were 124 (37 males, 85 females and 2 preferred not to say) active Facebook users who completed an online survey consisting of four scales. Interestingly, results from a hierarchical regression analysis revealed that narcissism, self-esteem and perceived stress were not significant predictors of Facebook intensity. To conclude, the current study found no direct predictive relationship and further research is required into the Facebook intensity and predictor variables relationship.
