There is a lack of any extensive research to confirm the fact that this is really an addiction that affects the lives of social network users. The aim of this thesis is to prove or refute that this social network can actually cause addiction to its users. The theoretical part first deals with the origin of addictive behavior, the nature of behavioral addiction, what factors can affect addiction and how this addiction can affect the life quality of the individual.

Because social networks are so diverse, the diagnostic interview is further specified only on the addictive behavior caused by the Instagram network. The results of the research survey showed the presence of all six symptoms in five respondents, which are necessary for the diagnosis of addiction. The significance of this social network in...
