Abstract

 

Youth and young adults have already been exposed from the beginning of their lives to digital technologies, and so children and teenagers are heavily affected by this digital technology. They were called the generation of digital, or the Y generation. Research in six Asian nations found that 62 percent of young people have mobile phones, and about 68 percent of Hong Kong teenagers use the Internet every day to communicate. The cross-sectional study design is used in the study. This study is conducted in a private university. The study population is the students who are currently studying in university. A total of 386 out of 400 subjects were selected for data collection. The data was analyzed on SPSS version 21.0. Internet addiction prevalence is high in university students (71.20%). They are suffering in their grades and sleep too. There is a significant difference between internet addicted (internet hours use per day) and non-internet addicted. This study revealed that internet addiction is much higher among university students of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Overall, the level of internet addiction is moderate, not at a severe level. While the effect of internet addiction on the level of fatigue and sleepiness is revealed.
