Social networking websites and family relationships; student's perceptions
Summary:
Τhe objective of the present study was, on the one hand to examine whether the remembrance of perceived paternal and maternal rejection affects positively the search for social support on Social Networking Websites and on the other hand to investigate to what extent the high quality of a friendship affects the search for social support on Social Networking Websites. In order to investigate these inquires, the logistic regression model was used in a sample of adults. The sample comprised 200 university students (54% males and 46% females) aged on average M= 24.34 (SD= 4.82), both undergraduate (53%) and postgraduate (47%) students. Logistic regression was used to predict the outcome ‘’Search for social support on Social Networking Websites’’. The scores of the following three questionnaires; (α) Perceived parental remembrance of the rejection was estimated via the questionnaire PARQ Adult, Short form (24 items). (b) The friendship quality was evaluated with the Adult Friendship Questionnaire (27 items). (c) The need to seek support was measured with the questionnaire Attraction to Computer-Mediated Social Support (33 items) were included as predictive variables in this model. Enter method was also used. The final model was able to define 15.6% till 21.4% of the variance, while it was able to successfully predict in total 69.1% of the cases . It has been proved that the increase of friendship quality entails reduction of the possibilities of seeking social support through Social Networking Sites (OR 0.965).
