    Vol 10 No 3 (2022)

    In recent years, the fast development of new technologies has promoted the creation of digital habits in the society. Several representative examples of the actions that users carry out daily include easily getting access to digital information, getting connected with family and friends, as well as working from home. In these circumstances, companies have adapted their communication and information strategies to increasingly focus on digital environments. For companies, the new era of technologies it is a valuable opportunity to get users spend more and more time interacting with information in digital environments, as well as in social networks or any other type of digital ecosystem.

    One of the industries generating relatively more income than other industries owing to globalization is tourism. There is also evidence demonstrating that tourism has been directly affected by the evolution and development of new technologies. At present, there is a clear growth in the number of initiatives from technology companies proposing new mobile applications to facilitate tourist excursions or digital services focused on the purchase and sale of tourist packages through the Internet.

    For many people, tourism is a way of life. Through tourism, i.e. through enjoying international stays and travel, people express their interests and habits. At the same time, there is a growing body of research on digital web-being defined as people’s social and healthy habits when using any digital technology. The use of digital technologies can affect online and offline users’ behavior, thus causing possible alterations in relation to their behaviors or attitudes.

    To address this issue, as well as to better understand the evolution and status quo of digital well-being, this special issue has collected articles focused on digital well-being in the tourism industry. As editors of this special issue entitled "Digital well-being in the tourism industry," we hope that the contributions to this volume will help both future researchers in the development of their studies and practitioners, in terms of improving their actions related to technology in the tourism ecosystem.
