Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the significant developments in mobile technology, mobile health is expanding its field in the digital health sector, providing individuals with healthcare support for both clinical and non-clinical populations. The range of applications varies from helping individuals’ lifestyles, such as improving fitness or food consumption, up to supporting chronic diseases. The diseases and target users are also diverse. Due to the wide range of support, there are important research areas for designing health intervention systems and implementing them to enhance their impact. Additionally, a large amount of data is collected and being configured for personalization, driven by artificial intelligence. In this Special Issue, we invite you to share your work on mobile health interventions, which will positively impact the future to facilitate and improve care delivery effectively.

The present study examined whether the relationship between the Dark Triad (DT) of personality and problematic smartphone use (PSU) can be explained by the mediating role of fear of missing out (FoMO). The role of FoMO in this relationship has yet to be examined. A total of 457 participants completed an online survey. Results indicated that males scored high on measures assessing DT of personality, while females scored high on PSU. Structural equation modelling showed that narcissism was directly associated with PSU. FoMO partially mediated the association between narcissism and PSU. Machiavellianism and narcissism were directly associated with FoMO. In the fully mediated model, narcissism (but not Machiavellianism) was still associated with FoMO, and in turn, FoMO was related to PSU. Although preliminary, the results of the present study indicated that Machiavellianism and narcissism might represent antecedents of FoMO, in addition to the Big Five personality traits, and both could be involved in the development of PSU.
