Abstract

The aim of this study has been to present the percieved influence of Facebook usage among

young adults. Five subjects, two men and three women aged 20-25, was the respondents of

qualitative, semistructured, interviews with an emphesis on social phenomenons that might

affect psychosocial health. After applying coding and thematc analasis to the collected data,

the findings were analyzed using socialpsychological theory and theory of identity and earlier

findings on the subject. The results show that the interviewed young adults tend to express

that Facebook usage is affecting their health in different ways, that Facebook as such has both

positive and negative sides and lastly that the individuals’ usage and represenatation on

Facebook can be linked to different roles and that the process of representation on Facebook

can affect the identification process.
