An Investigation into Facebook addiction and its toll on RI year-ones
Why did we choose this topic?
We hypothesized that Year1 RI students’ lives were being negatively impacted by Facebook. Thus we investigated how so, and found out more about Facebook addiction.
Our research centered on identifying causes for Facebook addiction, understanding its causes and effects, and finding solutions to curb Facebook addiction.
The “Methodologies” section identifies how this was done. “Results and analysis section reports our inferences and understandings. Finally we conclude the presentation with some advise on future research on similar fields.
During our research, we found out that in the global masses, a game known as “Farmville” was majorly the cause of addiction.
Other games on Facebook were also said to have been causes of addiction
Other than that, there were still some who were addicted to it because of the chatting and file-sharing convenience it offered.
Our Interviewee whom we made an appointment with was Mrs. Jacqueline Chua, head of Character Education. We roughly estimate her age to be somewhere in or close to the 30 to 40 range.*
We met her for our interview in late March. Another Research Education group was interviewing her as well but there was no interference from them. Present Interviewers were Jerome, Mahin and Hamilton
That is merely a rough, unsupported estimation. We do not claim that it is true or relevant in anyway. Age may differ in whatever scale from given demographics due to our applicants refusal for statement.
From our survey, we found out that Facebook was not treated as a gaming and entertainment site within RI. Most still used Facebook as a social network.
