Communication technologies have a critical role in knowledge work. Especially when working remotely and all communication being technology-mediated, individual workers are increasingly responsible for deciding where, when, and how the work is done. The use of communication technologies entails many opportunities, but also challenges. For example, interruptions, constant connectivity, and multitasking can challenge employees’ wellbeing and be related to stress. Therefore, it is important to ask how knowledge workers manage the use of communication technologies in order for it to be as effective and appropriate as possible. In this literature review, we theorize communication technology use from the point of view of individuals’ agency. We build a theoretical framework by combining theories of computer-mediated communication competence, digital literacy, and media mastery. We also discuss related processes of selfregulation. This review compiles timely research on communication technology use and suggests new conceptual tools for theorizing it.
