CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Computer and internet have gained a central importance in human life and social media had a prominent role in this picture. Besides easy, cheap and fast access to information through computers and the internet, the expansion of the communication network is one of the factors that lead individuals to use social media. Social media has become indispensable part of the daily life. Although there are many useful applications of social media, the excessive use of medium led to personal, social and occupational problems. With these problems, it began to lead Social Media Addiction, which describe as a new kind of addiction. Social Media Addiction is a term used to describe situation where a user spends too much time on social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) such that it negatively affects other aspects of his or her daily life like school, work, or relationships with others (Walker,2011). According to Pavlicek (2013), a social media addict can considered as one with an urge to be use social media excessively. For instance, engaging activities like “frequently checking status updates and post or “stalking” the profiles of other users for many hours” and this behavior or habit conflicts with his or her everyday responsibilities such as family, school, work or other social obligations. Social media addiction is a relevant problem that will even get worse in future due to the rapid development of technologies. People spend more time in the internet and social networking sites. 1

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
