A total of 300 Puerto Rican adults participated in this psychometric study. The sample was selected by availability. The results confirmed that the scale has a one-dimensional structure. A total of 12 items complied with the criteria of discrimination and presented appropriate factor loadings. The reliability index for the final version was .98 (Cronbach’s alpha). These results suggest that the Perception of Infidelity in Social Networks Scale has the potential to measure this construct among Puerto Rican adults.

El objetivo principal de esta investigación fue desarrollar y validar la Escala de Percepción de la Infidelidad en las Redes Sociales (EPIRS) en una muestra de adultos puertorriqueños. Un total de 300 puertorriqueños participaron en este estudio de carácter exploratorio y psicométrico. La muestra fue seleccionada por disponibilidad. Los resultados confirmaron que la escala posee una estructura unidimensional. Un total de 12 ítems cumplieron con los criterios de discriminación y las cargas factoriales apropiados. El índice de confiabilidad alfa de Cronbach de la versión final fue .98. Estos resultados sugieren que la EPIRS tiene el potencial para medir este constructo en adultos puertorriqueños. Además, la escala permitirá el avance de nuevas investigaciones sobre la infidelidad cibernética en parejas puertorriqueñas y latinoamericanas. Facultad de Psicología.
