—Does technology adoption make user happier? Answers to this question are important to user well-being, but existing literature does not provide useful guidelines and conclusions in response. This study aims to fill the knowledge gap by investigating the drivers of user happiness. The study was conducted in a context of mobile-internet adoption by Hong Kong consumers. Quantitative data were collected with a survey method in 2013. Data were analyzed with multiple regression models. The findings indicate that usage variety, task type and satisfaction significantly influence user happiness.
