Deniz, Levent
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v37 n1 p20-23 Mar 2010
The association between loneliness and excessive internet use among secondary school students was examined. One hundred and sixty seven secondary school students were administered a questionnaire for some demographic questions and UCLA for determining their loneliness levels. The results showed that the secondary school students who reported greater hours of engagement on the Internet have higher loneliness levels than the average users. (Contains 3 tables.)
