Abstract Previous research on stress and media use mainly concentrated on between-person effects. We add to this research field by additionally assessing within-person associations, assuming that experiencing more stress than usual goes along with more nomophobia (“no-mobile-phone phobia”) and more passive and active Facebook use than usual, cross-sectionally and over time, and by exploring potential age differences. We conducted a secondary analysis of three waves of a representative multi-wave...
Abstract Emojis (particularly smiley emojis, ☺) are increasingly used in computer-mediated communication as well as in applied domains within marketing, healthcare, and psychology. The emotional negativity bias in the facial emotion processing literature posits that women are more sensitive to negative facial emotion than are men. Given the similarity in neural processing between human faces and smiley emojis, women may likewise view negative smiley emojis as more negative than do men. Moreover,...

Abstract Behavioral determinants of cybersecurity have gained greater attention among information technology experts in recent years. However, drivers of risky cybersecurity behavior have not been widely studied. This exploratory study examines the extent to which risky cybersecurity behavior is predicted by factors of protective cybersecurity behavior. Self-reported risky cybersecurity behavior was examined in light of technology threat avoidance factors in a sample of 184 working adults in the...

Abstract Use of the social platform Facebook belongs to daily life, but may impair subjective well-being. The present experimental study investigated the potential beneficial impact of reduction of daily Facebook use. Participants were Facebook users from Germany. While the experimental group (N = 140; Mage(SDage) = 24.15 (5.06)) reduced its Facebook use for 20 min daily for two weeks, the control group (N = 146; Mage(SDage) = 25.39 (6.69)) used Facebook as usual. Variables of Facebook use, life...

Abstract This research examines the relationship between loneliness, narcissistic self-presentation on social network sites (SNSs), and subjective well-being. To effectively understand narcissistic self-presentation on SNSs and subjective well-being, it is important to examine the antecedents of subjective well-being. Self-reports on loneliness, self-presentation, self-discrepancy on SNSs, and subjective well-being were collected from 338 women aged 20 to 39 years. The results showed that loneli...
Abstract The relationship between self-selected fitness application software use (henceforth, fitness apps) and physical activity behavior is not well studied, nor is the role that exercise identity may play in predicting fitness app use. This study examined these relationships by evaluating the ability of exercise identity to mediate a hypothesized positive association between fitness app use and physical activity behavior. Data were collected from college students (N = 310) who completed surve...
Abstract This study explicated individual differences in susceptibility to cybercrime victimization by predicting that frequent use of information technology (IT) devices is related to greater likelihood of cybercrime victimization (exposure hypothesis), and testing whether individuals more vulnerable to cybercrimes are characterized by higher (overconfidence hypothesis) or lower (negligence hypothesis) levels of IT self-efficacy. Our study also investigated whether cybercrime victimization woul...

Abstract This study investigated associations between screen-use (time and type) and cognition in children and tested the hypothesis that across all screen types, time spent on screens is negatively associated with cognition. Methods This study presents cross-sectional data from 11,875 US children aged 9–10 years. Exposures were self-reported daily recreational screen-use. The primary outcome was global cognition measured by the Youth NIH Toolbox®. Covariates included child education, pubertal d...

Abstract Grounded in Bandura’s (2001) social cognitive theory of mass communication and Giles’ (2002) model of parasocial relationship (PSR) development, the current research examines how a viewer’s wishful identification with an online video game streaming personality and emotional engagement with other viewers lead to behavioral loyalty through PSR with their favorite live-streamer. To test the proposed mediation model, the researchers conducted a survey using a representative sample drawn fro...

Abstract Despite decades of research concerning social conformity and its effects on face-to-face groups, it is yet to be comprehensively investigated in online contexts. In our work, we investigate the impact of contextual determinants (such as majority group size, the number of opposing minorities and their sizes, and the nature of the task) and personal determinants (such as self-confidence, personality and gender) on online social conformity. In order to achieve this, we deployed an online q...
