Digital Media Overuse


Types of Digital Media Overuse


Digital Media Overuse (DMO) commonly known as “Internet or technology addiction,” involves the compulsive and problematic use of digital devices that support online and streaming platforms for gaming, pornography, spending, social media, and information/entertainment.

Most digital platforms are built on persuasive design architecture that overrides our efforts to moderate use and to control impulses. DMO adversely impacts academic and workplace success, disrupts sleep, compromises attention/concentration, increases social isolation, and negatively impacts physical and mental health.
