User Acceptance of Lifelogging Technologies: The Power of Experience and Technological Self-Efficacy

Abstract

Today, innovations in the field of lifelogging technology and its assistance in everyday life enable different users to gain an overview of different areas of their lives. Especially for older and frail people, lifelogging offers useful solutions that allow them to stay longer in their private environment and maintain their autonomy. Although lifelogging is already used in many contexts, opinions of users on the different lifelogging applications and the influence of user characteristics on their acceptance still remain underexplored. In this study, we investigate the acceptance of lifelogging technology for activities of daily living and examine the impact of user characteristics on its key determinants according to the Technology Acceptance Model, which is used as a theoretical background. For data collection we used a quantitative online survey and took opinions of N=209 German adults into consideration in the statistical analyses. Our findings demonstrate that an already existing experience with lifelogging is the main influencing factor for user acceptance: High levels of the experience and technological self-efficacy in handling of the technology significantly enhance the acceptance of lifelogging for activities of daily living, while age and gender shape the acceptance indirectly. This study contributes to the user acceptance research of lifelogging in private environments, and our findings deepen the understanding of how adoption of lifelogging technologies is shaped by different users.
