Purpose of the survey:
In recent years, researchers have begun to investigate the impacts of Facebook use on romantic relationships. In particular, jealousy and interpersonal electronic surveillance have been found to increase with Facebook use. Research has suggested that age and relationship length may moderate this relationship. This survey aims to contribute to this growing research area by investigating the relationship between Facebook use and both Facebook Jealousy and interpersonal electronic surveillance, as well as the moderating effect of age and relationship length. (Note: You do not need to currently be in a romantic relationship to participate in this study).
