dc.description.abstractThe aim of the current study was to investigate the relationship between Facebook intensity, body-esteem and self-consciousness including private and public self-consciousness. Participants were asked to complete a questionnaire that was comprised of three different scales measuring Facebook intensity and social connectedness, self-consciousness and body-esteem. Eighty-six participants took part in the study, all of which were female students, full and part time undergraduates and transition year school students. The predictor variable was the subject’s score in the Facebook intensity scale, and the criterion variables were body esteem and self-consciousness. The results reported that there was a significant relationship between body esteem scores and Facebook intensity. It was concluded that Full time students spent more time on Facebook than transition year students and part time students, and this had an effect on part time student’s self-consciousness levels. Suggestions for limitations and further directions were discussed. Author Keywords: facebook,females,adolescents,body-esteem,self-consciousnessen
