What is Phone & Media Addiction
Phone and media addictions are cases of dependency in which a person spends significant time on their smartphones or social media despite this resulting in health issues. In such cases the relation to smartphones becomes problematic and the need to use them becomes compulsive which can interfere with one’s life.
The major factor that contributes to this type of addiction is the escape that these technologies provide. A person on social media can receive an unnatural amount of attention from strangers through likes, comments, and other interactions which can trigger the release of dopamine.
People with social anxiety, who might avoid real-life interactions, can anonymously share their thoughts and emotions on social media. Yet with the increase of time this individual spends in isolation can increase their mental and psychological issues. Prolonged use of smartphones has proven to cause posture issues as well as eye strains.
The dynamics of social media have also proven to cause some harm to psychological health especially for children and teens. Additionally, such addictions can increase the chance of a person using their phones in inappropriate situations which can have negative consequences especially if a person uses their smartphone when driving.
