The research aimed to study the relationship of exposure to Facebook and depressive symptoms among selected college students. With three hundred forty three (343) college students, the Beck Depression Inventory - a 21-item self-report instrument, measured depressive symptoms; and the Facebook Intensity Scale measured Facebook exposure. Results show that there is no significant relationship between depressive symptoms and Facebook Usage; Facebook Connection Strategies; Length of Time Spent on Facebook; and Number of Friends on Facebook.
