This study aimed to investigate the role of family communication patterns and classroom psychosocial and social environment in addiction to mobile-based social networks. The current study had a statistical population including all male senior high school students in Zahedan. 244 students were selected by using a multistage sampling method. In order to collect data, Koerner and Fitzpatrick Family Communication Patterns Questionnaire, Fraser et al. Classroom Psychosocial Environment Inventory, and addiction to mobile-based social networks questionnaire were used. The results indicated that both dimensions of family communication patterns were significantly and negatively related to addiction to social networks and among the dimensions of classroom psychosocial environment, friction and competition had significant and positive relationships with addiction to social networks and cohesion and discipline had significant and negative relationships with it. The results of a stepwise regression analysis showed that conversation, friction, conformity, competition, and cohesion could explain a total of 49% of variances in addiction to social networks. Therefore, according to the findings of the present study, families can be suggested to adopt conversational strategies when interacting with their children and teachers are recommended to direct their classroom environments towards cohesion and constructive engagement.
