dc.description.abstractThe aim of the study is to examine self-esteem, narcissism and social anxiety and how they correlate to the amount of time spent on Facebook and any other online activities. College students (N = 69) completed the ICT scale, Facebook intensity scale, Rosenberg Self-Esteem, the NPI-16 subclinical narcissism and the Self-consciousness scale. Pearson’s r correlation was conducted to test the six hypotheses. The results showed that there was no significant relationship between the amount of time spent on Facebook on self-esteem, narcissism and social anxiety, and overall self-consciousness. Also, there was no significant relationship between the amount of time spent on other online activities on self-esteem, narcissism and social anxiety, and overall self-consciousness. Implications of why Facebook intensity scale, the ICT scale and the self-consciousness scale are used were discussed, including how this study could have implications to society. Author Keywords:Facebook use, Internet use, Social Anxiety, Self-Esteem, Narcissismen
