The Internet is available anytime, anywhere thanks to a host of wireless communications and mobile computing devices. This accessibility makes it difficult for people with online addictions or compulsions to avoid the object of their fixation. Any excessive online activity that leads to personal, family, or community problems can be considered an Internet addiction, and compulsive behaviors can take the form of online and electronic gaming, compulsive shopping, or frequenting chat rooms and social-networking sites.

Internet Addiction and Online Gaming discusses the nature of these problems, their impact on society, and how readers can watch out for emerging addiction in themselves and in others. Aside from the damage addictions can do to someone's personal life, there are also technological risks from malware, viruses, and malicious hackers. Teens will learn how to use information technology wisely and safely and how to protect themselves from these damaging behaviors.

Chapters and topics include:

  • Attitudes, behaviors, and characteristics of online addicts
  • Social computing and online addictions
  • The personal and economic harm of online addictions
  • Responsible, safe use of the Internet
  • The role of educators, government, and parents.
