Abstract

Introduction: Academic stress and addiction to social networks are current issues that affect many university students in Peru given the technological advancement and competitiveness of modern education.
Objective: To analyze the relationship between social network addiction and academic stress in Peruvian university students.
Methods: Quantitative, correlational, cross-sectional, non-experimental study. Validated and reliable questionnaires were applied to 168 university students who formed a sample with a margin of error of 5% and a confidence level of 95%.
Results: academic stress was at a medium level while addiction to social networks was at a medium-high level. The most relevant inferential results showed that academic stress had a moderate negative relationship with the dimensions of social network addiction: Obsession (Spearman's Rho = -0.434, p< .001), Lack of control (Spearman's Rho = -0.462, p< .001) and Excessive use (Spearman's Rho = -0.501, p< .001).
Conclusions: it was possible to determine a moderate negative relationship between academic stress and addiction to social networks (Spearman Rho = -0.482, p < .001), that is, it could be concluded that university students who experience higher levels of academic stress tend to use social networks less addictively.
