Description

In recent times, the negative consequences of social network sites (SNS) including social overload, loss of self-control and technology addiction caused problematic usage behavior. Combined with the new phenomenon of IT-mediated state-tracking, the habit of constantly checking for new updates has a rising impact in terms of information technology (IT) usage on the society. Since there is a lack of theoretical insights on how to break checking habits, strategies have been developed to disrupt the user’s habit of compulsive and excessive usage. To provide insights on this topic, a literature review has been conceived which invests Information System (IS) journals and IS conferences. The results show six disruption strategies. The paper’s findings contribute conceptually to the existing IT literature including an illustration from which users can derive important and useful guides to disrupt their IT-mediated state- tracking habits.

Breaking Out of the Social Media Prison: Identifying Strategies to Disrupt the IT- Mediated State-Tracking Habit

In recent times, the negative consequences of social network sites (SNS) including social overload, loss of self-control and technology addiction caused problematic usage behavior. Combined with the new phenomenon of IT-mediated state-tracking, the habit of constantly checking for new updates has a rising impact in terms of information technology (IT) usage on the society. Since there is a lack of theoretical insights on how to break checking habits, strategies have been developed to disrupt the user’s habit of compulsive and excessive usage. To provide insights on this topic, a literature review has been conceived which invests Information System (IS) journals and IS conferences. The results show six disruption strategies.
