 Abstract
Purpose: This study was conducted to explore the relationship between high school students' mental social health and their tendency toward social networking addiction. Methods: The subjects were 543 high school boys and girls living in D city. The data were collected from the 3rd to 21st of March in 2014. Data were analyzed using t-test, ANOVA, Duncan's post-hoc test, Pearson's correlation analysis, and hierarchical regression with SPSS/ Win 21.0. Results: Social networking addiction showed significant differences depending on gender (t=-7.03, p<.001), academic achievement (t=4.571, p=.011), and the level of maternal education (t=3.344, p=.019). Social health was correlated with the tendency toward social networking addiction. Multiple regression analysis found that gender, academic achievement and social health were associated with the level of social networking addiction (F=8.750, p<.001, Adj. ). Conclusion: The results suggest that it is necessary to take into account gender characteristics, academic achievement and social health in order to develop effective management programs for social networking addiction among high school students.
