Abstract


The main objective of this study was to investigate the level of cyberloafing and nomophobia among university students. The study also aimed to assess the level of cyberloafing and nomophobia among university students in relation to various variables. Data were collected using demographic information form, a cyberloafing scale and a nomophobia questionnaire. The study was conducted with 302 students studying in a state university in the Southeast Anatolia region of Turkey during the fall semester of the 2021-2022 academic year. Descriptive statistics, one-way test ANOVA, independent samples t-test, Pearson's correlation coefficient and Kruskal-Wallis test were used to analyse the data. The analysis revealed that the students' cyberloafing level was low and nomophobia level was moderate. Based on the statistical analyses, significant differences were found between students' level of nomophobia according to gender and daily phone usage. However, no statistically significant difference was found between students' age and their level of nomophobia. No significant difference was also found between gender, age, daily phone usage and level of cyberloafing. Moreover, there is a significant relationship between cyberloafing and nomophobia behaviour of the students.
