Response: Addiction

The term “tech addiction” was first coined in 2001 in an article by Nicholas Carr. Carr defined tech addiction as a pattern of excessive use of technology that can interfere with one’s life and adversely affect mental and physical health.

Today, there is a growing awareness of the dangers of tech addiction, and experts have started using the term more frequently to describe individuals who are unable to break away from their devices.

Some of the signs of tech addiction include spending excessive amounts of time on devices, neglecting other activities in favor of using technology, feeling restless or irritable when away from devices, and withdrawing from social life or work.

There is still much research to be done on the topic of tech addiction, but there is a growing consensus that it is an issue that needs to be addressed.
