Is Facebook a substitue for basic physiological needs ? [VIDEO] [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why do we use social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, or blogs? One approach to this question is to look a Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The following video is the narrative for a theoretical paper dealing with the question “Is Facebook Threating Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs?” The paper will review Facebook and social networking as a threat to human basic needs as described by Abraham Maslow. I wasn‘t able to find a source of the paper. If you know if it is published and where to find it please let me know in the comments.

In addition to the video you find an infographic on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and the social media that fulfil them.
