Internet and Social Media Addictions, are increasing in prevalence
with the spread of smart devices and internet accessibility. Among
students alone, internet addiction may be observed in up to a quarter
of the population, further exacerbated by the isolation and anxiety
caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Focusing on the concepts of behavioral identification and disruption,
the 10Seconds app will act as a buffer between social media addicts
and addictive apps. Users of 10Seconds will be directed through a
waiting period - a literal 10 second break - when they wish to interact
with their addictive apps. During this break users will be exposed to
media encouraging mindfulness, giving users the opportunity to break
from the controlling compulsion that drove them to the addictive app.
10Seconds will be a true partner in users fight against their social
media addiction, journeying with them on a path to wellbeing.
