Cyberloafing is increasingly becoming a serious issue for corporations and society. Changes in household demographics and longer working hours together with advancements in technology have resulted in the intertwining of work and family domain. Based on the theory of interpersonal behavior, this conceptual study explores and extends cyberloafing behavior to be driven by work-related Internet usage in personal domain, work demands as well as private demands (defined as family/social demands outside of the work domain). The resultant augmented theory could provide a richer explanation for intention to cyberloafing behavior.
