Social adjustment, though dependent on social interaction and communication, is influenced by many tacit factors. One such a factor, the use of new technologies, figures prominently among the youth, as they spend a lot of time using the web, playing computer games, and watching satellite television. To assess the hypothesized relationship between social adjustment and the extent of using new technologies, a sample of 233 high school sophomores was randomly selected and then asked to fill the social adjustment and the technology usage questionnaires. The analysis of the collected data did not reveal any significant relationship between the two constructs, yet it seems that the more time spent on the web or playing computer games, the higher the adjustment scores while the more time spent watching satellite TV, accompanies lower scores of social adjustment.
