Comments on: Social media and self control http://adigaskell.org/2013/01/18/social-media-and-self-control/ Bringing the world of social business to you Sun, 06 Jul 2014 13:28:27 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 By: Adi Gaskell http://adigaskell.org/2013/01/18/social-media-and-self-control/#comment-34930 Wed, 23 Jan 2013 13:32:36 +0000 http://www.adigaskell.org/blog/?p=2477#comment-34930 I thought about that possibility Andy. The study says however that it asked participants to do various things, after which their self-control was tested. So it's possible that a range of social media users were included in the Facebook group, including both avid fans and reluctant users.

Maybe it's people with a less stable self esteem who are most attracted to facebook?

I agree, social media, because it's often consumed in isolation, either behind the anonymity of a laptop or mobile phone, creates a false sense of 'protection' against the real world. It's somewhat akin to road rage, where drivers tend to curse, shout and make gestures in their car, but once they step outside and face another person, the reality check comes hitting hard! (In some cases, too late, unfortunately)

I wasn't aware of these different researches. Good stuff.
Have a nice weekend!
Frederic
