The concepts of digital obesity and digital literacy, which are interconnected in influencing human beings, can find their place in all areas of life with the virtualized life industry in the globalizing world. Having these competencies, awareness can be explained by the orientation process between these concepts and the individual. In this direction, this study, which aims to examine the relationship between digital obesity and digital literacy levels of individuals, has been carried out, taking into account the existing orientation process. In the study, which was designed as a quantitative research, the relational survey model was used. The research was carried out with 549 participants. The results indicate that the level of digital obesity and digital literacy significantly predict the level. In addition, age, gender and educational status seem to play a partly mediating role in the relationship between digital obesity and digital literacy.
Key words: Digital obesity, digital literacy, individual, virtual, addicted.
