ABSTRACT

Social Networking Sites are increasingly popular nowadays. Many SNS developers like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and others are competing to give the best features in terms of socialization, interaction, privacy and even entertainment. It is not surprising that many people are hooked on with these sites since it is free and easily accessible with the use of a computer connected to the internet and even with the use of a mobile phone that enables SNS applications or internet browsing. However, does SNS usage affect interpersonal relationships? Do people rely too much on the fastest way communicating on the internet despite the lack of face-to-face interaction? This research aims to determine the effects of SNS to the interpersonal relationships. It also focuses on analyzing the level of interpersonal relationship after using SNS. The thesis will then consider how social networking sites impact interpersonal relationship in the real world. This research is based on a survey of 239 purposively selected respondents that use social networking sites everyday with the status of their interpersonal relationship with family, friends, teachers and others as they use social networking sites.
