Bandwagon Effects of Popularity Information on Audience’s Media Product Selection: Information Load and Cultural Unfamiliarity

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



Abstract:

Building on information cascade theory and dual-process theories, this study examines bandwagon effects of product-popularity information on audience’s media product selection. It further examines whether the strength of bandwagon effects is stimulated by how uncertain people are about the quality of the content offerings. An analysis of box office sales of Hollywood movies in 73 countries during 2003 – 2007 is conducted. The results confirm the presence of bandwagon effects and the influence of quality uncertainty.
