The Relationship between Aimless Navigation on Internet and Digital Gaming Addiction: Moderator Effect of Anxiety
Digital gaming addiction poses a serious risk for adolescents. For this reason, a study on adolescents about the subject becomes crucial. This research aimed to investigate the mediator effect of anxiety on the relationship between aimless navigation on the internet and digital game addiction in adolescents. The research was carried out on a total of 658 adolescents, including 323 (49.1%) of whom were girls and 335 (50.9%) were boys. The ages of the participants were distributed between 12 and 19, and the average age was 13.61. Data were obtained by Beck Anxiety Scale, Game Addiction Scale for Adolescents and Personal Information Form. The analysis was made after the variables were found to meet the normality assumptions. The survey model was used in the research and the relationship between the variables was analyzed by the mediator test. In the research, it was determined that aimless navigation on the Internet significantly predicted digital game addiction and anxiety in positively. At the same time, anxiety significantly predicts digital gaming addiction. It has been found that anxiety is mediated partially in the relationship between aimless navigation on the internet and digital game addiction.
