The moderating role of personality in the relationship between temporal perspectives and facebook addiction

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

In the present paper, we tested the hypothesis that neuroticism moderates the relationship between past-negative or present-fatalistic temporal perspectives and Facebook addiction. A sample of 233 Facebook users (Female: 66%, mean age: 21.4 years) filled self-reports measures of temporal perspective, personality traits, and Facebook Addiction. Results at two moderation models showed that only past-negative significantly predicts Facebook addiction through neuroticism's moderation effect. Individuals with a negative temporal orientation to the past, who are also characterized by a high neuroticism level, were more addicted to Facebook. Peculiar associations between past-negative temporal perspective with neuroticism personality trait in determining Facebook addiction were theoretically discussed. Practical implications of the study are also highlighted.
