High Self Esteem
Low Self Esteem
To control for participant's cognitive performance things were taken into account
– The experimental group was allowed to look at their own profiles for 5 minutes -
a self affirming venue
– But the control group
were assigned an average stranger – an equivalent yet
A simple cognitive task was then used
Doing sequential subtraction by 7's from 1978
As many attempts in 2 minutes
Measured two things from this test
and number of
Implicit Association Test (IAT)
This test measures unconscious attitudes and activates the associated value judgement
Basically - its how fast you associate words
good or bad words to associate with yourself
good or bad words to associate with others
High self-esteem - the faster association with positive words towards yourself, and the slower association of negative words towards yourself
1. Increase in Self-Esteem from view your own Facebook
It was found that self esteem was increased after looking at one’s own profile because it is a carefully managed type of presentation that makes you look awesome
IAT test showed higher scores for experimental group
2. Increase in Self-Esteem Caused Decrease in Motivation
An increased sense of self-worth induced by target's own Facebook profile decreased the motivation of the target - the effort to prove oneself became superfluous
target had less attempts at the cognitive task (sequential subtraction of 7 from 1978)
but with the same amount of errors as the control group
Using Facebook makes you less motivated!?
A shocking new finding ... Facebook is a waste of your time!
Along with other studies that support that it decreases school performance and increases procrastination
