The article reviews the results of foreign sociological and psychological studies on phubbing behavior and Internet addiction over the past 10 years.

Girshfield). The survey involved young people from different regions of Russia (72% of girls and 28% of boys; average age 22.3 years). In conclusion age and sex differences in dependence on gadgets among the youth have been confirmed and specified.
