Abstract (Document Summary)

Internet addiction is a contemporary problem brought about by easy access to computers and online information. Individuals addicted to the Internet can develop many types of disorders.

Internet addiction as an actual disorder began to surface more widely in the media in the late 1990s, as the general public was rapidly making its way onto the information superhighway, bringing its collective dysfunctionality along for the ride.
