Along with the increasing popularity of social networks, spending time on these networking sites has become a part of daily activities. In the present study, intensive use of FB and the variables that directly and indirectly affect FB usage are approached as a whole. A concrete model presenting these relationships is introduced. The model proposed in the current study shows approximately 50% of the variance in intensive use of FB is predicted by other variables. This result shows when the information about the frequency of FB use, the time spent on FB, the number of FB friends, and the general use of FB is obtained, the intensive use of FB by individuals can be understood to a large extent. In summary, this model shows that individuals who have more friends on FB use it more frequently and longer. This situation causes them to use it more for general purposes and increases their intensive uses of FB.
