Relationships between Facebook Use and Sleep Patterns Among College Students

About

This study examined the relationship between Facebook use and sleeping habits among 86 college students at a medium-sized southeastern university. Specifically we hypothesized that Facebook use would have an effect on sleep quality and quantity. The results showed no significant relationship between Facebook use before bed and sleep quality or quantity. Our research lead to conclusions about the differences in effects, however, the data adds to the growing body of research about social media use among young adults.
