About Social Media Addiction Scale
Social Media Addiction Scale (SMAS) is a measurement tool developed to measure the social media addictions of university students by the researchers. After all reliability and validity studies, a structure consisting of 41 items and four factors was displayed. SMAS is a five-point Likert scale graded with the frequency expressions in the range of “Always”, “Often”, “Sometimes”, “Rarely”, and “Never” and the highest point to be taken from the whole of the scale is 205 and the lowest point is 41.
Increasing in the points taken from SMAS means increasing in social media addiction. In order to help the interpretation of the points taken from SMAS, the range of the points to be taken from the scale were detected and range coefficients were calculated in accordance with the five-point Likert scale. Accordingly, from 41 to 73 means “No Addiction”, from 74 to 106 means “Less Addicted”, from 107 to 139 means “Moderate Addicted”, 140 to 172 means “High Addicted” and from 173 to 205 means “Very High Addicted”.
