Facebook Paradox? Summary

Research suggests that Facebooking can be both beneficial and detrimental for users' psychological well-being ("Facebook Paradox"). However, the specific effects of Facebooking on individuals' social relationship satisfaction and psychological well-being remain inconclusive. Using structural equation modeling, causal pathways were examined between Facebook intensity, online and offline social relationship satisfaction, perceived social support, social interaction anxiety, and psychological well-being. Personality differences on each of those casual paths were also assessed. Employing a sample of 342 university students, results indicated that intensive Facebooking positively predicted users' psychological well-being through online social relationship satisfaction, and simultaneously negatively predicted users' psychological well-being through offline social relationship satisfaction. Furthermore, perceived social support mediated the path from Facebooking to psychological well-being, and social interaction anxiety mediated the path from offline social relationship satisfaction to psychological well-being. Taken together, the present study suggests that when and how Facebooking is helpful or harmful to users' psychological well-being depends on both user characteristics and online-offline social contexts.

What is audiobook and how does it work?
Audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to rather than read. Audiobooks can be exact word-for-word versions of books or abridged versions. You can listen to audiobooks on any smartphone, tablet, computer, home speaker system, or in-car entertainment system.

An electronic book, also known as an e-book or eBook, is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices. Although sometimes defined as "an electronic version of a printed book",some e-books exist without a printed equivalent.
E-books can be read on dedicated e-reader devices, but also on any computer device that features a controllable viewing screen, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
