It’s a real thing. In my role as CEO of a tech start-up, I spend my days on video calls. These video calls are across all platforms; Zoom, Teams, Google Meet, you name it, I’ve used them all. A typical day consists of eight+ Zoom calls, beginning as early as 6AM and usually 30-90 minutes long. Then throw in a handful of voice calls on top. This makes for exhausting days.
Wikipedia describes Zoom fatigue as “tiredness, worry or burnout associated with the overuse of virtual platforms of communication, particularly videoconferencing.
