1. Research paper: Happiness and Technology: Special Consideration of Digital Technology and Internet2. Connected lives: digital technology, social interaction and identity1. Research paper: Happiness and Technology: Special Consideration of Digital Technologyand InternetThis article concludes that technology has positive and negative effects on the subjective well- being of individuals. One of the benefits of new technologies is as communication tool thatcan be used to enrich social relationships. It allows people to interact daily with their family and friends by sending messages and photos. Also, it empowers people to improve, advance or reinvent their lives, allowing them to self-actualize and meet soul mates. On the one hand, it is pointed that technological progress is leading to an ever more rigid, controlled, soulless society, in which it is easier for people to be manipulated and monitored. It supposedly isolates people from the real world. This research paper is analyzing the opinion of experts, scholars and health specialists. They affirm that technology will continue to improve many aspects of our life but in certain aspects it may harm the subjective well-being of the individuals. Mochon, Francisco.

Connected lives: digital technology, social interaction and identityThe article describes the features of our hyper-connected society and the impact of digital technology on interpersonal communication and self- expression. It says that the digital technology can complementally replace our communication face to face. Therefore, especially among young people, the Internet has now become an important element for building, managing friendships and social life. However, using too much digital technologies can lead to the fact thatyoung people show a great interest in knowing about others, up to suffering from the “FOMO syndrome” (fear of missing out): they cannot be denied the use of the Internet. In addition, the digital technology leads to a redefinition of the boundaries between what is considered private and what is public. Serrano-Puche, Javier.

The influence of dispositions and Internet motivation on online communication satisfaction and relationship closeness . The article suggests that people can use textual messages to form impressions and to develop relationships with others. This study examined the influence of unwillingness to communicate, loneliness, Internet-use motives, and interaction (amount and types of use and self-disclosure) inonline communication satisfaction and online relationship closeness. There were 261 participantsin this study. Overall, participants who perceived their face-to-face communication to be rewarding, used Internet for self-fulfillment, and disclosed their personal feelings to others tended to feel close to their online partners. Lonely people tend not to value face-to-face communication. They tend to be shy, introverted, and avoid interpersonal communication. They felt online interactions were less threatening and more rewarding than face-to-face interactions. This research paper shows that the Internet helps people communicate and develop relationships.Pornsakulvanich, Vikanda, et al. “The Influence of Dispositions and Internet Motivation on Online Communication Satisfaction and Relationship Closeness.” Computers in Human Behavior, vol. 24, no. 5, 2008, pp. 2292–2310.,
