IS habit has emerged as an important determinant of continued use. In this study, we advance our understanding of thisconcept by shifting attention from desired IS use outcomes, which have been the focus of past IS continuance and habitresearch, to potential adverse outcomes of IS habit, namely technology addiction and high engagement. We argue that “bad”IS habits can also develop, and explore their nomological net. We do so with SEM techniques applied to data collected from197 social networking website users.
