This survey of adults was conducted in order to compare adult experiences on social networking sites to teenagers’ experiences.
As a rule, more adults than teens reported positive results on social networking sites. For instance, a higher proportion of adults than teens say their experience is that people are mostly kind on social networking sites. Significantly smaller proportions of adults have had bad outcomes based on their SNS use such as confrontations, lost friendships, family strife, and fights.
Interesting findings: The paper describes adults tendencies and emotions using social networks. The research highlights the general climate and environment when using social networks, how and why, in the relationships between the users negative and positive situations are generated.
