Social Connection Scale (Boyd, 2008)

E-mediated Social Connection Scale

Communicating with others electronically is part of my everyday activity.

I feel out of touch when I haven‟t logged on to a social networking site for a while.

I feel I am part of an online community.

I enjoy communicating with others electronically.

I feel out of touch if I am not able to send or receive texts or instant messages (IM).

I have many friends with whom I communicate electronically.

I would be sorry if I couldn‟t communicate electronically with my friends.
