Abstract
This research paper can be considered a survey about the impact of technology in happiness. The article points out that the scientific approach of happiness states that happiness can be measured and explanatory factors of well-being must be searched empirically. The analysis of technology impact on happiness starts with the opinion of philosophers and social thinkers, and then focus on the revision of empirical research works. The paper concludes highlighting that technology, being the motor of economic well-being, has positive and negative effects on the subjective well-being of individuals. Therefore it is essential to undertake an adequate regulation that promotes positive effects and mitigates the possible harm.
