dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to examine the relationship between Facebook Activity and the constructs Self-esteem and Narcissism in two different age groups, 18-23yrs and 24yrs and above. A total of 82 full-time and part-time students (F=47 M=35) participated by way of convenience sampling and snowball sampling. Each participant completed a questionnaire pack containing the Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale, the Narcissistic Personality Inventory-16 and the Facebook Intensity Scale. A quantitative design using correlation found no significant relationships between Facebook Activity and Self-esteem or Facebook Activity and Narcissism in either group. However, the results reported that there was a significant difference in Facebook Activity between the groups and a t-test also highlighted a significant difference in Self-esteem between the groups. Implications of the findings and suggestions for further research are discussed. Author Keywords: Facebook, narcissism, self-esteemen
