Social Network: A Tool of Interaction Displacement and Isolation for Social Media UsersHeading

Auther : Ali A Dashti Hadi R. Ashkanani

 One of the dilemmas many families face today is the use of social networks (SNs) between family members. Despite their positive advantages, SNs have affected many social activities, including communication and interaction in the family. This research investigates this phenomenon in Kuwait to determine how much SN programs have affected social communication and isolation. The study uses displacement theory as a theoretical framework to understand this effect. Questionnaires were disseminated among students at five public and private universities. The two measurements used in this study were social isolation and social support. The results show that students spend more time on SNs, and this displaces the time they spend with their family. The nature of the SN programs affect social isolation more than the time spent on social interaction.
Key words: Social Network, Social Displacement Effect, Social Support, Social Isolation, Kuwait.
