Spanish version of the Facebook Intrusion Questionnaire (FIQ-S).

Psicothema 2019 May;31(2):204-209

Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London.

Background: Although there is growing research on the excessive use of Facebook and its correlates, most studies to date are not directly comparable or generalizable to the overall population as their samples are often limited to students and they use different assessment tools. The first aim of our study was to develop a Spanish version of the Facebook Intrusion Questionnaire (FIQ-S), an instrument which emphasises the social components and consequences of excessive Facebook use. Second, we aimed to examine its psychometric properties: factor structure, reliability and external validity. Read More

Parental Identification and Response to Adolescent Substance Use and Substance Use Disorders.

Drugs (Abingdon Engl) 2019 9;26(2):175-183. Epub 2017 Oct 9.

Department of Psychology, Rowan University College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Glassboro, NJ, USA.

Previous research showing that parents tend to underestimate adolescent substance use is consistent with concerns that adolescent substance use may develop because parents delay in reacting to it. However, little research has examined parental decisions regarding how and when to intervene on adolescent substance use. This study examines the actions that parents report they would take after a) discovering substance use to intoxication and b) when they believe their child has a substance use problem. Read More

Deciphering the Signal From the Noise: Caregivers' Information Appraisal and Credibility Assessment of Cancer-Related Information Exchanged on Social Networking Sites.

Cancer Control 2019 Jan-Dec;26(1):1073274819841609

1 Department of Cancer Prevention and Control, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, Buffalo, NY, USA.

With the rise in the use of the Internet for health-related purposes, social networking sites (SNSs) have become a prominent platform for cancer communication and information exchange. Studies of cancer communication on SNS have mostly focused on understanding the quantity, content, quality, and user engagement (eg, likes and comments) with cancer-related information on SNS. There is less of an understanding of when and why people coping with cancer turn to SNS for cancer-related information, and how users appraise the credibility of cancer-related information obtained on SNS.

Social Media: Social Intelligence Training Module.

MedEdPORTAL 2016 Aug 26;12:10442. Epub 2016 Aug 26.

Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Saint Louis University School of Medicine.

Introduction: Physicians' posts on social media have the potential to impact the patient-physician relationship, interpersonal relationships at work, institutions' reputations, and the public's trust in health care professionals. Empirical research, along with several very public cases of unprofessional behavior by physicians on social media, suggests that resident physicians are not always aware of the implications of their actions online. Residency programs are being charged with ways to model positive online presence. Read More

Wireless Middleware Solutions for Smart Water Metering.

Sensors (Basel) 2019 Apr 18;19(8). Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Ferrara, 44121 Ferrara, Italy.

While smart metering applications have initially focused on energy and gas utility markets, water consumption has recently become the subject of increasing attention. Unfortunately, despite the large number of solutions available on the market, the lack of an open and widely accepted communication standard means that vendors typically propose proprietary data collection solutions whose adoption causes non-trivial problems to water utility companies in term of costs, vendor lock-in, and lack of control on the data collection infrastructure.

Offline: The possible effects of Internet-related behavior on work values, expectations, & behavior among Ultra-Orthodox millennials.

J Soc Psychol 2019 ;159(2):210-224

a Jerusalem College of Technology.

This work examines differences in the work-related values, expectations, and behaviors between millennials who are significant users of technology and social media, and those who are not. We delineate the development of millennial behavior using a unique group of millennials, those in the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish (known as "Haredi") community in Israel. Due to religious and community norms, many Haredi millennials were shielded from digital technology, and particularly the Internet and the various technologies associated with it, such as text messaging and social media.
