  • TITLE: Need for Containment as a Motivation for Facebook Use

    AUTHORS: Liat Feldman

    KEYWORDS: Facebook, Containment, Attachment Style, Psychological Effects, Online, Social Network

    JOURNAL NAME: Social Networking, Vol.7 No.1, November 17, 2017

    ABSTRACT: Research reveals a mixed picture regarding Facebook uses and psychological effects associated with them. This study looks at this issue through the lens of the psychoanalytic concept of containment. We combined this concept with the anxious and avoidant forms of attachment to create a framework with which to investigate the active and passive uses of Facebook. Using a questionnaire administered to 275 Israeli students, we established that the need for containment predicted logging onto and posting on Facebook after negative experiences. In addition, fulfillment of one’s need for containment was associated with posting on Facebook. We also observed a positive change in one’s feelings about oneself and one’s subjective sense of visibility after posting on Facebook. These results offer a new approach to exploring both Facebook use and its effects.
