    Question Abstract help

    Hi,

    I am writing an abstract for my article. I know that it should be complete, concise, self-contained etc. Also, I know that i’m not enough good in English to make a specific stylistic changes.

    Reviewer of my work ask me to make a stylistic changes (e.g. „on the one hand“ / „on the other hand“, instead of „from the one hand“ / „from the other side“, „such as emotionality“ instead of „as emotionality“, etc.). But, i need help with others changes, because i have no idea what can be changed.

    So, i would be grateful if someone good at English, can make that changes for me to make an article more complex in up to 160 words.


    The main goal of this paper was to examine the relations between compensatory Facebook use and Facebook addiction from the one hand and life satisfaction and self-concept from the other side, behind the role of personality traits. The sample included 372 participans (88,4% female; M(age)=24,38). Instruments used in the study were Life Satisfaction Scale (Šarčević and Vasić, 2010), self-concept scale (Bezinović, 1988), Psycho-Social Aspects of Facebook Use scale (Bodroža and Jovanović, 2016) and the six major dimensions of personality scale (Lee and Ashton, 2009). Results show that compensatory use of Facebook and Facebook addiction correlate with all self-concept dimensions, life satisfaction and personality traits as emotionality (positively) and honest-humility, extraversion, agreebleness, conscientiousness and openness to experience (negatively). Some of that dimensions are also good predictors of compensatory use of Facebook and Facebook addiction. Therefore, expected relations are confirmed with the need of more detal explore in the future.

Therefore, the expected relations are were confirmed by the study, but further research is required to gain a more detailed understanding of these relations. with the need of more detal explore in the future.
