Habit and Addiction in the Use of Social Networking Sites: Their Nature, Antecedents, and Consequences

Publication date: Available online 17 May 2019Source: Computers in Human BehaviorAuthor(s): DongBack Seo, Soumya RayAbstractHabit and addiction are two distinct drivers of information technology (IT) use that nonetheless bear increasing resemblance in how they are conceptualized and modeled in the information systems (IS) literature. The purpose of this study is to aid the further growth of these heretofore-independent streams of research by developing a comparative framework that allows us to distinguish between them. Drawing on the theories of automaticity and incentive-sensitization, we developed a theoretical model that describes the nature, antecedents, and consequences of habit and addiction of IT use in the context of social networking services. The proposed model was tested based on the data collected from 420 actual users of Twitter. We found that habit was indeed influenced by its proposed unique antecedents of routine seeking and cognitive rigidity, whereas addiction was not. Similarly, addiction was influenced by its proposed unique antecedents of focused immersion and concern for social acceptance, whereas habit was not. Looking at their outcomes, we found that although both drivers positively affected goal-congruent outcomes, only habit enhanced goal-congruent usage and addiction had a negative impact. Overall, this study contributes to the IS literature by offering a robust conceptual framework that allows us to observe the profound differences between these su...

By Wendell BalderasBANGKOK, Thailand, Jun 14 2019 (IPS) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) decision authorizing the sale of Philip Morris International (PMI)’s heated tobacco system, IQOS, in the United States inadvertently puts a foot in the door to increase sales of new tobacco products in the developing world. In April this year, the FDA authorized the sale of IQOS heated tobacco products in the US. However, it clarified that it has not approved IQOS as a ‘modified risk tobacco product’ (MRTP). But PMI is riding on this ‘US-FDA approved for sale’ of its IQOS as also safer ...

All medications come with a dose of risk. From minor side effects to life-threatening allergic reactions, every decision to take a medication should be made only after the expected benefits are weighed against the known risks. You aren’t on your own in this: your doctor, your pharmacist, and a trove of information are available for your review. Recently, I wrote about how newly approved drugs often accumulate new warnings about their safety, including a gout medication that garnered a new warning due to an increased risk of death. Now, according to a new study, the common prescription pain medication tramadol ma...
