EurekAlert: Facebook can help college students with lower confidence build relationships

EurekAlert: Facebook can help college students with lower confidence build relationships. “Facebook can help first-semester college students maintain relationships with high school friends and assist them in creating new friendships, according to new research from Binghamton University, State University of New York. When it comes to making new friends, those with higher confidence in their social skills have less to gain from relying on Facebook, while people with lower confidence in their social skills have more to gain from a reliance on the social media platform.”
