Abstract
The study of mobile phone addiction and perceived loneliness among the college students, was done in 120 college students from the Kollam district.. The major statistical techniques used are Pearson Product Moment Correlation, and independent sample t test. The intercorrelation was assessed between the variables mobile phone addiction and perceived loneliness among male and female college students. Mobile phone addiction is not linked to loneliness. But there is interrelationship between mobile phone addiction and its sub-variables. Hence, mobile phone addiction may influence an individual apt to have loneliness. Regarding the result of the research, it is suggested that in future studies other variables such as aggression, personality characteristics, stress, anxiety should be investigated along with perceived loneliness. Hope that more researchers in the future will be motivated to apply these approaches to the understanding of the new and exciting field of mobile phone addiction and perceived loneliness.
