Beyond Factual Knowledge: The Impact of Online News Features on Self-Perceived Knowledge

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



Abstract:

The experimental study reported here investigated the impact of the presence of multimedia, interactivity and hypertext in online news on the self-perceived knowledge expressed by news users. The results demonstrated that these online features do have an impact on the subjects’ conviction to be abreast of the news, while interacting with the level of difficulty of the article and users’ web expertise. The addition of online features made experienced users more convinced of their obtained knowledge only if the news was difficult, whereas this perception dropped among inexperienced users. Conversely, inexperienced users of online news benefited more from the addition of online features when the articles were easy. Moreover, results indicated that subjective knowledge positively correlated with objective knowledge. These findings provide further insights in how the online news features affect users’ objective and self-perceived knowledge.
