Sotsiaalmeediasõltuvus on üks paljudest häiretest, mis n-ö elustiiliga võivad kaasneda. Siinviidatu on kirjandusülevaade, mis võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele inimestele, kuid kindlast nii organisatsioonides juhtimise eest töötasu vastu võtvatele kui ka tudengitele-uurijatele, kel huvi kirjandusülevaate koostamise vastu.


The addictive usage of social media networks has led to compulsive symptoms like decreased work productivity, wrinkled social bonds, sleep disorders and diminished life satisfaction (Dhir et al., 2018; Hawi & Samaha, 2017; Müller et al., 2016; van den Eijnden et al., 2016; Wolniczak et al., 2013; Xanidis & Brignell, 2016). It has even fostered feelings of envy, depression and unease in people (Pantic, 2014).

This study endeavours to analyse the recent literatures focused on measuring addictive behaviour on social media. It also charts the shift from measuring addictive behaviour on explicit social media platforms to a more standard platform.


In contrast to substance addictions, addiction on online platforms has been described as a behavioural kind (Griffiths, 2005). These patterns include obsessive behavioural participation accompanied by an interest deficit in routine activities leading to physical and psychological symptoms (Soper & Miller, 1983).


Social media addiction is a focussed and narrow concept (Sun & Zhang, 2020) and is defined as the person’s excess concern regarding social media, with assertive enthusiasm and committing extra physical resources to it, such that a user’s societal activities, social affairs, work/assignments and even health are damaged (Andreassen & Pallesen, 2014).
