Young adults’ social needs and Facebook use (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate social needs and Facebook habits of young adults who work with service in the entertainment industry. Relationship between Facebook use and social needs to interact or express dominance were analyzed. Furthermore, it was analyzed whether social needs and Facebook use differ between women and men, privacy settings and the attitude to whether Facebook communication is equivalent to the communication eye to eye. An instrument, Social Needs and Facebook Use (SobFB), was constructed from which a questionnaire was created that was directed to employees in a company in the entertainment industry. 57 people, of which 28 women and 29 men, respectively, answered the questionnaire. From the questionnaire responses, composite variables were constructed in the form of indexes to describe the variation in Facebook habits and social needs. The result showed that the use of Facebook to search for information and to communicate was positively correlated. There were no significant links between Facebook habits and stated social needs. The women in the study generally spent more time on Facebook than men. Women felt more than men that Facebook communication is as valuable as communication eye to eye. Women also relied on Facebook to a greater extent than men. Those who spent a lot of time on Facebook often lacked privacy settings and expressed addiction to greater extent.
