Belongingness and interpersonal communication are among the most essential human needs. However, the ways individuals satisfy these needs change with the advances in technology. Especially with the increase of internet usage, social media platforms became the primary source that satisfies these needs of individuals. However, despite of its contribution to social communication, recent research also revealed the negative consequences of social media use, especially those of social media addiction. Social media addiction (SMA) is defined as possessing a high motivation or inner tendency to use social media to an extent that it leads to dysfunctional outcomes such as failure in work/academic performance, decline in psychological well-being, or breakdown in social relationships. As an initial step for prevention programs, identifying the antecedents and the protective factors for SMA is as important as revealing its consequences. In the present chapter, characteristics of SMA, along with antecedents and consequences of SMA among adolescents are summarized. Furthermore, future directions for SMA research, practical implications and intervention strategies indicated in the literature to prevent SMA among adolescents are presented.

A constraint programming model for making recommendations in personal process management: A design science research approach
Oruç, Sercan; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Koçyiğit, Altan (2021-01-01)
Decision-making in everyday life has an essential role in effectively completing personal tasks and processes. The complexity of these processes and the resulting cognitive load of managing them may vary significantly. To decrease the cognitive load created by such decision-making efforts and to obtain better outcomes, recommendation systems carry significant potential. In order to investigate the benefits provided by decision support systems (DSS) in personal process management (PPM), we first build a cons...

This study investigates what persuasion strategies are more effective for whom. More specifically, the relationship between the Big Five Personality traits (extraversion, neuroticism, agreeable...
An Algorithm For Plotting Computerized Hidden-Line Perspectives
Canbulat, İbrahim; Pultar, Mustafa (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1976)
Within the general classes of communication media, there are those specific ones that will match well defined communication need. The architect must be assured that the alternate costs and flow times are favorable in terms of the total communication value of the medium. Architect's disciplinary communication media are established on graphical symbols such as plans, sections, elevations, perspectives etc. The communication media of computers are entirely different from those of the architects. This communica...
