Digital disconnection is often presented as a solution to this problem, but mixed evidence on its effectiveness suggests we lack understanding of why, how and when disconnection works. Drawing from three recurrent social media metaphors - the drug, demon and donut metaphor - this article aims to advance understanding of social media disconnection by developing a classification of disconnective mechanisms in accordance with three conceptual approaches to social media overuse. This classification provides theory-driven support for differing social media disconnection mechanisms. We discuss its implications for practice and future research.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/162870||ISSN:||2352-250X||DOI:||10.1016/j.copsyc.2021.12.007||Rights:||© 2022 Elsevier Ltd.
