ABSTRACT

Social media addiction is a major problem for the current generation of students. Easy availability of internet, and the ability to access social media websites through mobile phones has increased the penetration of social media. Students often leave their homes as they begin the phase of higher education. Social media is often the first choice for students away from their homes to find new company and spend time. However, the lack of personal support from parents and the influence of social media often cause adjustment problems in college students. Adjustment problems could lead to reduced academic performance and severe mental health issues. The present study analysed the effect of social media addiction on adjustment to college work, and concluded that social media addiction can cause adjustment problems in college students.
