The aim of this current study was to contribute a greater understanding and analyse the relationship between social networking sites and trait procrastination. Previous research largely focuses on younger adults and students, this current study aims to expand on this taking all adult age ranges into consideration. A questionnaire was administered online with a total number of 162 participants having completed it. The questionnaires had demographic questions followed by two scales which helped measure these variables. The first scale was and adapted Social Network Sites Usage Questionnaire Scale (SNSUQ) and a Pure Procrastination Scale (PPS). Results revealed that there is a significant positive relationship between Social Network Sites Usage and Procrastination. Results also showed that there was a significant negative relationship between age and procrastination. Moreover, findings also demonstrated that there was no difference between student status and use of social networking sites. Findings contribute and expand greater to existing literature on social network sites and procrastination. Results from this study recognised implications as well as having outlining strengths, limitations, and future work.
