Effects of Group Response on Continued Newcomer Participation in Online Groups

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



Abstract:

The study examines the influence of mediated-communication and interaction on continued participation of newcomers in online social groups. It investigates the effects of various group responses on the continued newcomer participation in a large online Question & Answer community, Stack Overflow. The quantitative analysis of 67,399 newcomers in Stack Overflow shows that different group responses would predict different patterns of newcomer participation in online groups. Existing group members’ helpfulness to newcomers’ first help request positively predicts newcomers’ intention to stay in the group as a help seeker as well as their transition to help others. Having a group sanction decreases a newcomer’s probability to help others but increases the likelihood to seek for help again in the short run. Group assessment of a newcomer’s first question is not significantly related to newcomers’ continued participation as help seeker, but significantly increased the likelihood of newcomers to help others.
