Abstract

This literature review explores smartphone use among college students. It examines how this usage creates hyper-connection, which is the state of being available for communication anywhere and at any time. I will examine the effects of hyper-connection on the well-being of college students. Hyper-connection is operationalized through the lens of constant availability, fear of missing out, friendship satisfaction, and face-to-face interactions. Furthermore, I will discuss the cyclical nature of the relationships between these variables. The conclusion outlines the limitations of current research and possibilities for future research in this area.
