3 Introduction Facebook is a popular social networking site that has many boons and banes addiction to Facebook is a major problem as it will affect our ability to socialise More and more people are addicted to Facebook Through this research we will know how Facebook affects the users social lives We will also be able to come out with solutions pertaining to this problem

4 Methodology We conducted a survey on 25 people We had an interview with Miss Jaime, the school counsellor, to find out her views on Facebook addiction and her suggestions on how to solve the problem

10 Survey Findings

11 Survey Findings Some solutions on curbing Facebook addiction (as provided by surveyed) Encourage people to create more events for meeting up with family and friends so that there can be more face-to-face interaction Create an application that lets you set a time limit for accessing Facebook so that once time is up, you will automatically log out Self-discipline and time management

12 Interview findings According to Ms Jaime, the school counsellor, age might influence how users use Facebook and the way users think of Facebook For example, the younger generation might create a Facebook account just because they want to fit in with others The older generation, who did not have Facebook in their time, feel curious about what it is and therefore want to create a Facebook account

13 Interview findings Ms Jaime, who belongs to the older generation, feels that Facebook has both positive and negative impacts on her Positive: she was able to find her old friends on Facebook Negative: sometimes she spends hr time on Facebook doing useless things, thus she wasted a lot of time Also, she felt tired after that and thus did not want to do any work

14 Conclusion A users level of education does not affect the number of hours he or she spends on Facebook Spending a lot of time on Facebook does not necessarily mean addiction to Facebook When you think of Facebook when you are offline, this affects the physical interaction with friends or family

15 Conclusion You can use Facebook and have enough time for other activities at the same time, as long as you manage your time wisely Facebook might not necessarily affect your social life negatively, it can affect it positively too, as long as you use it in the right way

16 Acknowledgements Mr Kelvin Yap, our teacher-mentor, for his guidance and advice throughout the entire project The 25 people we surveyed and our interviewee, Ms Jaime, for their valuable responses and opinions which benefited us greatly in our project The librarian, who kindly rented us Project Corners whenever we needed them The photocopying lady, who helped us to print our documents
