Text Correction
In the original article, there was an error. The original text on page 6 is: “The main effect of avoidant attachment yielded F(1, 248) = 12.11, p < .001, indicating that the mean Facebook-self score was significantly greater for high avoidant-attachment participants (M=2.44, SD=0.05) than for low avoidant-attachment participants (M=2.44, SD=0.05).”
