Abstract

In this paper we discuss the associations between social media use, life satisfaction, social comparison, life envy, and self-esteem. The sample included 390 Egyptian subjects aged (18-35) (M=20.94, SD=2.08). The results of analysis conducted using partial correlation and linear regression revealed that the use of social media negatively affects the levels of life satisfaction (p=0.39, R2=0.15). Findings are also discussed within the contexts of the mediating role of social comparison, envy, and self-esteem in connection with social media use and life satisfaction.
