dc.description.abstractThis study looks at Irish adolescents’ use of Facebook. It aims to investigate what personality traits are related to Facebook use, and if Facebook use is related to selfesteem and psychological well-being. A self-report questionnaire was given to 167 adolescents, 95.2% of whom are Facebook users. The findings indicate relationships between Psychoticism and intense Facebook use, number of friends, time spent using Facebook, and using Facebook to initiate contact with strangers. They also point to correlations between Extraversion and intense Facebook use and number of friends. In the older group of adolescents, relationships between Facebook use and lower sense of well-being are evident. Results suggest relationships between use of Facebook, personality, and well-being that may inform further researchen
