"The Impulsive Appeal of Social Network Sites (SNS): Automatic Affective Reactions to SNS-Cues" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 64th Annual Conference, Seattle Sheraton Hotel, Seattle, Washington, <Not Available>. 2019-03-25 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Why do people sometimes give into their desires to use social network sites (SNS) despite their willingness to resist them? Dual-systems models of social behavior suggest that automatic affective reactions to SNS-cues (e.g., Facebook logo) may trigger impulses to use SNS. We investigated this reasoning among Facebook-users in two studies (N=72 and N=128). Facebook-users completed the Affect Misattribution Procedure (Payne et al., 2005), which captured their immediate, automatic affective reactions to Facebook and control cues (pictures; e.g., Facebook-logo). Afterwards, Facebook-use and habit were assessed using a questionnaire. Results revealed that frequent and habitual Facebook-users showed more favorable affective reactions to Facebook-cues than control cues, while occasional and non-habitual Facebook-users’ affective reactions did not differ as a function of cue-type. Moreover, automatic affective reactions to Facebook-cues were meaningfully related to self-reported cravings to use Facebook (Study 2). Our findings provide novel insights into the impulsive aspects of SNS-use.

Abstract: The present study explores the relationship between Social Network Site (SNS) use and life satisfaction by focusing on the perceived informational support and individuals’ ability of SNS use. Data from a survey (N=4777) of college student users on in mainland China were analyzed by structural equation modeling. The study revealed that SNS use had a positive association with perceived life satisfaction, while informational support mediated the relationship between ability of SNS use and life satisfaction. In addition, a comparative model study between men and women was conducted, and some significant differences between these two groups in several relational patterns (behavior and ability) were found. We briefly discussed the implications of our findings within the context of social media ecology.
