Everything in this contemporary world can be
exploited including a smartphone. Smartphone has both pros and cons. So, our
research is focusing on the dark side of the smartphone and how it creates a
potential risk to our mental health, productivity, time and academic
performance. We are conducting a survey that examines the relationship
between social media use and academic performance. We want to show that heavy
social media usage is positively related to lower GPA i.e. Academic performance
has a negative correlation to social media addiction and suggesting to them the
best ways to get rid of smartphone addiction. Several mobile phone
applications are available to help smartphone users to self-monitor their
smartphone usage. These mobile applications may provide a means of delivering
behavioral interventions to protect smartphone users from their potential
problematic usage. At last, we want people to let them know the truth
of how heavy smartphone usage is affecting their mental health, productivity,
and safety in performing their daily tasks.
