The study group consists of 161 high school students from two state high schools in Turkey. Pearson Correlation Coefficient and Stepwise Multiple Regression analysis techniques were used in the study, designed according to the cross-sectional method. Based on the findings of the study, there are positively-correlated relationships between age, Daily Duration of SNS use on Smartphone, Duration of Smartphone Ownership, and FoMO variables and Smartphone addiction. In addition, there are negatively-correlated relationships between Duration of Sleep, Checking Frequency of SNS on Smartphone variables and smartphone addiction.
