Literature Review

Underpinning Theory

According to Chou, Condron, and Belland (2005), there are few studies
found that there is a relationship between internet addiction and users' social -
psychological or personality variables, such as sensation seeking, pleasure
experiences, use-and-gratification, loneliness, and depression. Besides that,
there are also few significant factors which associated with the internet addiction
such as, drinking behavior, dissatisfaction with family, and experiences of
stressful event (Lam, Peng, Mai, & Jing, 2009).

In Lam et al. (2009) study, found that internet addiction is a behavioral


manifestation of internal stress and stress is a known risk factor of addiction.
Besides that, Esen and GündoÄŸdu (2010) stated that internet addiction might be
an escape for adolescents when they cannot cope with the problems of life and
one of the main problems is not be able to handle the pressure from peer. So,
when adolescent feel stress due to some problem, they cannot cope with it, they
will choose to escape from the real world to get into the imaginary world of
internet.

According to Torres (2010), online social support can enhance internet


use. Moreover, the easy access to unlimited online information and little
censorship also contribute to the problem of internet addiction (Patrick, 2010).

Discussion of Literature by Themes

Research has accumulated suggesting that excessive Internet use can


lead to the development of a behavioral addiction. Internet addiction has been
considered as a serious threat to mental health and the excessive use of the
Internet has been linked to a variety of negative psychosocial consequences.
(Daria Joanna Kuss, Mark D. Griffiths, 2012).

The activity of play has been ever present in human history and the
Internet has emerged as a playground increasingly populated by gamers.
Research suggests that a minority of Internet game players experience symptoms
traditionally associated with substance-related addictions, including mood
modification, tolerance and salience (Daria Joanna Kuss, Mark D. Griffiths, 2012).
A total of 58 empirical studies were included in this literature review. Using the
current empirical knowledge, it is argued that Internet gaming addiction follows a
continuum, with antecedents in etiology and risk factors, through to the
development of a “full-blown” addiction, followed by ramifications in terms of
negative consequences and potential treatment. The results are evaluated in light
of the emergent discrepancies in findings, and the consequent implications f or
future research (Daria Joanna Kuss, Mark D. Griffiths, 2012).

Summary

The social media adoption rate continues to grow. This Social Networking Site
(SNS) was very popular to the world especially to students. Therefore we conducted a
study about “The status of Social Media use of grade 9 and 10 students in Holy Rosary
College”. We conducted this study in order to know if/how social media was used by the
students, whether it is a positive or negative. We oversee some solution by choosing
random respondents/ interviewees from grade 9 and 10 students to answer the
statements that we made in a survey/questionnaire paper as our instrument for our
research to know if social media was used by the grade 9 and 10 in a negative or
positive way regarding to their academic performance. For us to get the results we use a
qualitative-descriptive approach. As a result from our 50% male respondents and 50%
female respondents, ages ranging 18-below, here are some social networking sites that

a common student use. 33.6 % of them uses YouTube, 27.9% of them uses Facebook,
19.7% of them uses Instagram and 18.8% of them uses Twitter, and the amount of time
spent by the students are 17.647% of them uses social media 1hour and below,
36.275% them uses social media 1 to 3 hours and 46.678% of them uses social media 4
hours and above. The research that we conducted is a proof that many students are
influenced to consume their time by using different kinds of social media.

study about social media.

2. For the future researchers, we do recommend that you will consider the
effects of social media to the relationship of a students to their family, behavior
and to their social life.

3. For the future researchers, we do recommend that you will find another
