This paper reports on a study of peoples’ experiences and emotions when using technology. Early results from the study give insight into a range of emotional responses to technology and the factors influencing them. The results suggest that a highly significant element of users’ experience of technology is related to the social context of use. We propose different dimensions of social context and explore social interaction using technology.
