Recent coverage of Anthony Weiner’s mayoral race has raised this issue. Social media and technology both create the potential for compulsive behaviors, and mechanisms by which such behaviors may become public. Identifying the most effective treatments for compulsive use of smart phones, social media apps, and the internet in general may be critical to our mental health.
