Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) have adopted social media. This study will modify a previous study that was done in 2003 by Metzger, Flanagin & Zwarum. Though the previous study has not included the survey questions, by examining the study, and looking at the measurements they used, it is possible to reconstruct the items from it.

Humans are, at their very core, social animals- more akin to pack or herd animals than to individualistic cats. (Pgs 4-5)
Humans were not made to be solitary creatures; although there are introverts, extraverts, and we all enjoy some alone time we also crave both physical and mental stimulation from others.
