JASSO MEDRANO, José Luis; LOPEZ ROSALES, Fuensanta  y  DIAZ LOVING, Rolando. Addictive behavior to social network sites and its relationship with the problematic use of the mobile phone. Acta de investigación psicol [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.3, pp.2832-2838. ISSN 2007-4719.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.aipprr.2017.11.001.

Information technology and communications have generated changes and innovations, significantly influenced in the life of the young people, since they have incorporated them of habitual way in their lives. However, the use of these has not only implied benefits in the population, with addictive behavior being one of the problems that affect young people the most. A sample of 374 college students was applied a social network addiction scale and mobile phone problematic use scale (Mobile Phone Problem Use Scale). The sample consists of 58.6% women and 41.4% men, with a mean age of 20.01 years (SD = 1.84). A relationship was found between social network addiction with problematic use of the mobile phone, computer use and mobile use. On the other hand, the problematic use of the mobile phone was only related with the use of the smartphone and not with the use of the computer. In conclusion, finding a very high relation between addictive behaviors, can give us a perspective of both being dependent. It is recommended to continue to deepen the study of the use and addiction to mobile devices and social networks, as the popularity is increasing, also increases the risk factors for unhealthy behavior of the use of technology.
