Social Comparison and Information-Seeking: College Students’ Sexual Health Information Management in the Context of User-Created Online Health Information

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Social comparison has been worked as a fundamental psychological mechanism influencing people’s information seeking behaviors. Focusing on the user-created online health information about sexual health, the current study highlights the role of social comparison messages in the information management process. The findings of this study support the Theory of motivated information management (TMIM) framework as an effective tool to explain the information management process. More specifically, this study highlights the role of efficacy in that efficacy was not only more likely to predict information seeking, but also to guide the choice of downward comparison messages. While information users prefer to check extreme cases worse than their situation for their reference, the interpretation of social comparison messages was related to information users’ cognitive re-assessments in the following phase. Finally, information users’ evaluation regarding benefits and costs of previous information seeking seemed to determine information management decisions in the subsequent phase.
