I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
Refer to the section on social media and psychology in your textbook (p. 69)
- Facebook friends range from 0 to 5,000, with an average of 338.

- Superior temporal sulcus – understanding meaningful social movements
- Entorhinal cortex – matching faces to names
What can we conclude from these findings? What questions remain? Please answer thoughtfully in at least 5 sentences.
