Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to investigate the correlations between Psychological Well-Being (PWB) and three measures of Facebook usages (Facebook usage time, FUT; number of Facebook friends, NFF; and Facebook Psychological Involvement Scale, FPIS). The sample comprised 1135 college students (463 male, 672 female) from 17 universities in Taiwan. The analytical results showed that the structural equation coefficient of FPIS-PWB were much significantly stronger than those of FUT-PWB and NFF-PWB. These finding all indicated that using Facebook may associate with some positive psychological outcomes. FPIS is a better indicator of Facebook usage since FPIS combined both qualitative and quantitative elements of Facebook usage such as psychologically salience of Facebook, emotional support and recreation of Facebook. © 2014 Taylor & Francis Group.
