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 < 0.001, 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).”

The corrected text on page 6, Analysis and Results section, Sub-section of “Predictors of the false Facebook-self is: “The main effect of avoidant attachment yielded F(1, 248) = 12.11, p < 0.001, indicating that the mean Facebook-self score was significantly greater for high avoidant-attachment participants (M = 2.43, SD = 0.44) than for low avoidant-attachment participants (M = 2.22, SD = 0.53).”
