In this study, we examined the mediating role of work-family life conflict in the effect of employees’ social media addiction on decisional procrastination. Gender, age, marital status, education, and the sector employed were used as control variables. The data were obtained using the social media addiction scale-adult form, work-family life conflict scale, decisional procrastination scale, and the personal information form in the online medium. We analyzed the responses of the 400 participants in the SPSS program and applied descriptive statistics, correlation, regression, mediation, and moderation analyses. As a result of the research, it was found that the increase in social media addiction has a positive effect on work-to-family conflict (WtoF) and family-to-work conflict (FtoW), and decisional procrastination. We concluded that WtoF and FtoW mediate the impact of social media addiction on decisional procrastination. Also, those living with families have a moderation role in the impact of work-family conflict on decisional procrastination.
