Use of Social Networking Sites and Subjective Well-Being
Sosyal Ağ Sitelerinin Kullanımı ve Öznel İyi Oluş

Leman Pınar Tosun [1]


The aim of this article is to review the empirical studies on the relationship between the social networking sites use and subjective well-being of its users. Firstly, it has been pointed out that the outcomes of social networking sites use depend on the type of usage (active or passive). Next, the studies attempting to explain why passive social networking sites use is related to reduced subjective well-being have been compiled, and specifically, the studies in which social comparisons and feeling of envy has been offered as an explanatory mechanism have been summarized. A need for researching about which emotions other than envy may potentially be triggered by the passive social networking sites use and how subjective well-being changes depending on those emotions has been brought forward. In addition, answers given to the questions of whether the relationships between the passive social networking sites use and the users’ emotions and subjective well-being depended on who have been contacted through social networking sites were sought.

Bu gözden geçirme çalışmasında amaç, sosyal ağ sitelerinin kullanımı ile kişilerin öznel iyi oluşu arasındaki ilişkinin incelendiği görgül çalışmaları derlemektir. İlk olarak, söz konusu ilişkinin, sosyal ağ sitelerinin kullanım türlerine göre (aktif ya da pasif) değiştiğine dikkat çekilmiştir. Ardından, sosyal ağ sitelerinin pasif kullanımının neden ve nasıl düşük öznel iyi oluşla ilişkilendiğini açıklamaya yönelik bulgular üreten araştırmalar derlenmiş ve özel olarak sosyal karşılaştırmaları ve kıskançlık duygusunu açıklayıcı faktör olarak öne süren araştırmalar özetlenmiştir. Ayrıca pasif sosyal ağ kullanımının kıskançlık dışında hangi duyguları tetikleyebildiğinin ve öznel iyi oluşun bu duygulara göre nasıl değiştiğinin araştırılması gerektiği gündeme getirilmiştir. Ek olarak, pasif sosyal ağ kullanımının hangi duyguları açığa çıkardığının ve öznel iyi oluşla ilişkisinin sosyal ağlarda kimlerle temas kurulduğuna göre değişip değişmediği sorularına da çalışmalarda verilmiş cevaplar incelenmiştir.
