Technology use

Are heavy digital tech users really that bad at estimating their tech use?

What this post is about There’s quite the fuzz about ‘objective’ measures of technology use. When we study the effects of tech use on well-being, we often just ask people to report how much they used tech. Turns out, people aren’t really good at estimating their tech use. When we compare their subjective estimates to logged tech use (hence ‘objective’), the correlation between the two is rather low as this meta-analysis reports.
