Students Still Love Facebook

Earlier this year, my undergraduate research group surveyed a group of students in an attempt to find out how they spend their time online. They were also interested in how online social interaction might interact with personality.

While personality didn't appear to predict how students use the internet, our sample was remarkably consistent when it came to documenting their typical behaviour online.

Like many things in life, culture and groups dictate what becomes popular. Back in 2004, Myspace dominated but as the graph below shows, in 2014, Facebook still rules with Twitter in hot pursuit.
