The results indicated that: the overall impact of MSNAs was found to be at moderate degree (M = 3.23). Also, social relation, family relation and awareness of current issues were found to be of the same degree (Means = 3.41, 3.23, 3.61) respectively. Compression of the means of the three dimensions with the theoretical means revealed significant differences in favour of each dimension.
