社交网站被动使用社会比较倾向嫉妒Passive of Social Network Use Social Comparison Orientation Envy



In recent years, the relationship between social networking sits and wellbeing has aroused both the public and researcher’s attention. Previous studies suggested that Passive of social network use would dampen the life satisfaction, reduce the self-perception, weaken the self-esteem, and lead to envy. Our research focuses on the envy, and we wonder that the relationship between Passive of social network use and envy. In addition, SCO is particularly important in the social media context because SNSs provide rich opportunities for social comparison, which can influence one’s psychological well-being. Specifically, people with higher Social comparison orientation are more likely to compare with others, so, we conclude the Social comparison orientation in our model. And finally we find that the relationship between Social comparison orientation and envy is partly mediated by Passive of social network use.
