Offline Friendships Affect Facebook Activity and Teens’ Theory of Mind

Elodie Gentina , SKEMA Business School – Université de Lille 2, France
SEM results with 657 adolescents revealed that quality (quantity) of offline friendships is positively (negatively) related to being more active on Facebook (making more connections; posting more comments; posting more photos). Adolescents who are more active on Facebook, in turn, have more developed theory of mind.
