Abstract: Adolescence is a time of biological, psychological, and social changes, which make youth inclined to undergo religious/spiritual (r/s) transformations. Deconverting, which is going from being religious to leaving religion, is an instance of religious transformation as much as turning toward religion. In Poland, since 1996, the number of adolescents involved in religion has been systematically decreasing. This study aimed to analyze how social factors, namely social comparison orientation and problematic Facebook use, affect deconversion processes in adolescents. The authors hypothesized that self-consciousness can help explain the mechanism of these relationships. In total, 550 respondents aged between 14 and 18 (M = 16.32, SD = 1.22) participated in the research. The Adolescent Deconversion Scale, Social Comparison Survey, Self-Consciousness Scale, and Problematic Facebook Use Scale were used. The results confirmed private self-consciousness as a mediator in the relationships between social comparison orientation and problematic Facebook use with deconversion processes in adolescents.
