Abstract

Over the last decade, Facebook has become a primal part of our internet culture today. Fort Lewis students were asked to fill out introversion/extraversion surveys and relationship satisfaction scales related to their online vs. offline relationships. Results showed that extraversion is related to Facebook use, but did not predict satisfaction with online or offline relationships. Results also showed that participants who scored higher on extraversion and satisfaction with online relationships had more photos on Facebook.
