"Technology Craving and Withdrawal: Exploring Compulsive Mobile App Use"

HCI International 2021
24-29 July 2021
"To date, very little research has looked at the cravings and withdrawal individuals may experience for certain mobile apps. Research has demonstrated that some individuals may be classified as addicted to various mobile apps. Current research has difficulty explaining why some individuals have difficulty controlling their addictive behaviors while others do not (Abrams 2000), primarily because they have not taken technology craving into account. Accounting for technology craving in models of technology use is important as craving has the potential to drive addictive behaviors. This study explores the roles of technology craving and technology withdrawal in compulsive mobile app use."
