Media usage diminishes memory for experiences


“…participants engage in an experience while using media to record or share their experiences with others, or not engaging with media. […]

Across three studies, participants without media consistently remembered their experience more precisely than participants who used media.

There is no conclusive evidence that media use impacted subjective measures of experience. Together, these findings suggest that using media may prevent people from remembering the very events they are attempting to preserve.”
