چکیده

 
ابزارهای فناوری اطلاعات با جاذبه‌های خود نقش مهمی در زندگی کاربران ایفا کرده و موجب شده‌اند تا افراد کار با این ابزارها را به هم‌نشینی با خانواده و دوستان خود برگزینند که این مسئله ممکن است در درازمدت منجر به انزوای اجتماعی و افسردگی افراد شود. مطالعه حاضر جهت تعیین ارتباط احتمالی میان میزان استفاده از این ابزارها و افسردگی جوانان طراحی شده است. جامعه آماری این تحقیق، جوانان کاربر ابزارهای فناوری اطلاعات (تلفن همراه، شبکه‌های اجتماعی و بازی‌های رایانه‌ای) است که 390 نفر به‌صورت تصادفی در دسترس، انتخاب و پرسشنامه تحقیق را تکمیل کرده‌اند. تحلیل داده‌های تحقیق با استفاده از روش تحلیل حداقل مربعات جزئی  انجام گرفته است. یافته‌های تحقیق نشان می‌دهند رابطه مثبتی بین میزان استفاده از بازی رایانه‌ای و سطح افسردگی جوانان وجود دارد؛ هیچ‌گونه ارتباط معناداری بین میزان استفاده از تلفن همراه و افسردگی مشاهده نشد و مابین میزان استفاده از شبکه‌های اجتماعی و افسردگی جوانان، رابطه معنادار منفی مشاهده گردید.
