Abstract: The Internet, as a representation of pervasive technological platforms, has brought a series of effects on our everyday life. An exploration of the determinants and consequences of Internet use from the psychological and social perspectives can facilitate current information system studies. As such, this paper hypothesised and examined the effects of a number of psychological factors on technology acceptance. A comprehensive framework has been put forward and empirically tested with data collected from 615 Internet users. Statistical results support that the hypothesised antecedents, i.e. social inclusion and psychological needs satisfaction, have significant effects on users’ beliefs and intentions of Internet usage. Also, the individuals’ continuance intention of using the Internet significantly affects their emotional reactions, well-being, and perceived value of the Internet.
