We studied the impact of time spent on the Internet by teenagers on their psychological well-being. The study involved 491 adolescents from 15 to 17 years (Me=16.1; SD=0.9) from eleven subjects of the Russian Federation (196 male). Depending on the time spent on the Internet daily, the study participants were divided into three groups: (1) less than 2 hours a day – 31%; (2) from 2 to 4 hours a day – 40%; (3) more than 4 hours a day – 29%. Respondents were asked several questions about their current emotional and physical condition. The more time teenagers spend on the Internet, the more unhappy, nervous or tense, and the less healthy they feel. The results demonstrate the negative impact of the abundance of time spent on the Internet on the teenager’s perception of their psychological well-being.
