Abstract

Snapchat is a popular social media network, but considerably less researched than other more established platforms. The purpose of this study was to examine how the amount of Snapchat use is correlated to personality, narcissism, and anxiety. We hypothesized there would be positive correlations between Snapchat usage and narcissism, extroversion, and anxiety. Using data from a convenience sample of participants recruited from Amazon Mechanical Turk, Pearson’s correlations and t-test analysis provided insight on these connections. There were significant positive correlations between Snapchat usage and narcissism, anxiety, and extraversion, but t-test analyses revealed that the users with low Snapscores had higher narcissism, anxiety, and extraversion.
