My research examines the psychology of social media use. In particular, I am interested in activities and experiences that promote and threaten belonging and well-being, and factors related to social media addiction. I have found that a lack of active participation and feedback on Facebook can threaten belonging needs, and that larger ostracising groups pose a greater threat. I am currently investigating how sharing photographs of close others on social networking sites affects emotions and belonging needs.
