Through the lens of salience and dual-system theories, this paper seeks to investigate how (via which intervening mechanism) and when (under what condition) social media addiction impacts information sharing without verification behavior. The results, using data from 234 social media users, show that social media addiction augments sharing without verification behavior, and this relationship is partially mediated by fostering absentmindedness. Furthermore, wellbeing status buffers the harmful impact of social media addiction on sharing without verification and absentmindedness.
