Final year UG presents work at BPS Annual Conference

Final year UG student, Pancy Poon, presents at the British Psychological Society (BPS) Annual Conference in Brighton on the 3rd May, 2017.

Sharing on social media: The role of self-presentational style and feelings of social anxiety

This work was carried out by Pancy under the supervision of Dr Dawn Watling, and was funded by an Undergraduate Research Assistant award from the BPS. This project explored how feelings of social anxiety and the extent to which we adapt our behaviour depending on what others are doing may relate to the information we use (specifically the number of likes and shares an image has) when deciding whether or not to share images on Facebook. This work attracted a lot of attention at the conference! Well done Pancy!
