Douyin, a Chinese short video software, is popular all over China, which is the international version of TikTok. Douyin has brought people new online entertainment experience and innovative business opportunities whereas it has also brought some negative effects to some certain groups. This study takes high school students in Shanghai, China as an example to analyze the phenomenon of Douyin addiction. Through online survey, it was concluded that most of Shanghai high school students had Douyin addiction, which had a certain impact on their study and physical health. This study points out that the main reason for the addiction to Douyin is that it is attractive and interesting, which can relax students' bodies and minds. Starting from this point, this paper proposes that students should be helped to overcome their addictions to Douyin from three aspects: school, Douyin and family.
