Selain itu, tahap kesunyian pelajar juga berada pada tahap sederhana (Min = 2.72; SP = .372). Namun kajian juga mendapati terdapat hubungan positif yang rendah diperoleh antara penggunaan internet bermasalah umum dengan kesunyian (r = .182, p = 0.01). Kajian juga mendapati tidak terdapat perbezaan signifikan min masalah umum penggunaan internet bagi pelajar lelaki dengan pelajar perempuan.
