Bergen Facebook Addiction Scale (CECILIE SCHOU ANDREASSEN, English)

The Bergen Facebook Addiction Scale (Andreassen et al., 2012) was developed to assess six core symptoms of addiction (Brown, 1993; Griffiths, 2005) as (1) salience, (2) mood modification, (3) tolerance, (4) withdrawal, (5) conflict, and (6) relapse. Initially, three potential items measuring each component were constructed – yielding a pool of 18 items worded in line with diagnostic criteria for pathological gambling (American Psychiatric Association, 2000) and the Game Addiction Scale (Lemmens, Valkenburg, & Peter, 2009). Then, the item with the highest corrected item-total correlation from within each of the six addiction components was retained in the final six-item scale. All items are scored on a five-point Likert scale ranging from (1) very rarely to (5) very often – asking how often during the last year the symptoms have occurred. The sum scores range from 6 to 30, where the suggested cut-score is set to >3 on at least four of the six criteria (polythetic scoring).
