5. A group of researchers surveyed 58 people when they first started using Facebook (the researchers called this “Time 1”) and again 3 months later (referred to as “Time 2” by the researchers). At both time points, the participants completed a measure of social integration (a sense of belonging to a group of friends). 
Assuming the measure of social integration was on an interval scale, what statistical test would the researchers use in testing their research hypothesis? Explain your answer.
