Results confirm that happiness is affected by certain personal stands and characteristics of research participants such as those indicating openness to new experiences, being people loving, optimistic, positive, future and present focused, knowledge oriented, relaxed, creative, helping, just and empathetic.

AB  - The unique possibilities of online social networks such as real-time data access, knowledge of users’ changing preferences and access to their statuses provide the possibility for innovation in the analysis of people’s behavior and opinions, when compared to classical offline methods. Literature review shows lack of studies about the use of public Facebook data in Serbia for the improvement of different product sale, political or promotional campaigns, recommender systems, etc. In this paper, we present the way how data from Facebook can be collected in order to gain insight into the individuals’ preferences and statuses, as well as their connection to a company's fan pages. In particular, we present data collection framework – Symbols – used for collecting individual specific data. The framework stores data into a local database and involves a module for a graph and content-based analysis of these data. The proposed framework for social network analysis can be used as a decision-making system in users’ preferences implementation thus creating a space for business improvements in various areas.

Media addicts in Serbia: problem dimensions and possible solutions

AB  - Advances in mobile devices technology enabled media access anywhere and anytime. The appearance of social networks opened new realms of life simulation, potentially boosting media addictions. Personal characteristics in combination with stressful situations may be causing repression of inner impulses, thus provoking some psychological conditions such as depression, anxiety or loneliness. In this situation, person might look into characteristics and content of different media to find the one which addresses his or her repressed impulses, thus enabling ―simulation of life‖. Person susceptible to one addiction might at some point decide to change it with another one, like alcohol or drugs use. The results of this research indicate that materialistic persons oriented towards societal success are more likely to become media addicts. Stressful situations coming from family, workplace, education and moral and ethical norms are strongly linked to media addiction. Family as a liberating agent has been found to correlate with a decrease in levels of media addiction. The repression of inner impulses has been increasing with levels of media addiction. Media addiction has been increasing with those research participants with feelings of happiness tied to shopping.
AB  - Све већи број корисника медија, као и могућност сталног приступа путем
мобилних уређаја – чине медијску зависност важном темом за друштво. С обзиром на наведено, ова студија има задатак да проучи како медијска зависност настаје и којим стратегијама и превентивним политикама ју је могуће умањити. У
уводу су цитирани различити аутори како би се пружио приказ претходних истраживања повезаних са личним особинама, стресним ситуацијама и потискивањем
унутрашњих импулса као предуслова за настајање медијске зависности. Такође је
разматрање различитих врста зависности било у средишту истраживања, тј. питање зашто је зависник изабрао баш одређену врсту зависности, а не неку другу.
Овде се успостављају истраживачке хипотезе. Наредна секција у раду објашњава методологију која је коришћена да се
испита медијска зависност у Србији. У овом делу излажу се питања из анкете која
се односе на узроке настајања медијске зависности.
Затим се излажу резултати истраживања који потврђују хипотезе. Укратко,
утврђено је да су људи са материјалистичким аспирацијама који желе друштвено
потврђен успех посебно погодни да постану медијски зависници. Такође, окидачи
за медијску зависност могу бити различите стресне ситуације из свакодневног
живота, што укључује сфере као што су образовање, рад, породица итд. С друге
стране, постоји само једна сфера која је у јасној негативној корелацији са медијском зависношћу и то је породица. Мала је вероватноћа да људи који осећају да је
„породица њихова слобода‖ постану медијски зависници. Поред тога, утврђено је
да међу људима који воле да купују има више медијских зависника у односу на
групу оних који то не воле да раде. Сви поменути резултати истраживања су онда
стављени у контекст демографских података испитаника како би се добила и та
димензија.
На крају је цео процес медијске зависности још једном разматран кроз завршна запажања. Ово укључује медијску зависност и личне особине, стресне ситуације и потискивање унутрашњих импулса. Потенцијалне користи овог истраживања су наведене као, на пример, коришћења за државну стратегију против медијске зависности. Предлаже се универзална методологија за мерење медијске зависности према свим медијима, као и континуално мерење у више земаља како би
се добила слика у односу на ово глобално питање. Стратегија превенције медијске
зависности предложена је с обзиром на истраживачки резултат који говори о утицају јаке породице да се смањи медијска зависност.

availability of new media and interactivity. This study examines media
addiction on three levels: purpose of use, medium of choice and online
application utilized. Media addiction increases with those who use media
for fun as opposed to individuals who use media for information;
level of media addiction is higher with users of new media as opposed
to users of old media; more interactive and less practical online applications
such as social networks and chat are more addictive. When
looking into nature of new and old media it is possible to conclude that
media addiction may be related to number of senses grabbed by media
and media features, such as live broadcasting and interactivity. This
brings us to conclusion that future of media may be in employment of
additional human senses in its use.
