Abstract :
The Internet usage is convenient, borderless, and unrestricted by time limits. However, this convenience can also lead to Internet addiction, especially for teenagers who do almost everything on the Internet, such as playing online games, searching for information, making friends, and staying in contact with friends and family. The current study develops a comprehensive model and instrument for measuring Taiwanese high school students’ individual cyber lives. Data on multiple variables (online gaming, cyber friendships, Knowledge growth, family life, and peer relationships) are compiled based on previous research and used to establish a cyber lives scale. The instrument in this study, consisting of 22 items across five factors, is a reliable, valid, and useful measure for assessing adolescent cyber lives. In total, 2113 usable responses are obtained from 1162 males and 951 females aged 16-19. Drawing on some of the key factors that influence adolescent cyber lives, this paper offers a new perspective on this multifaceted topic.
