Abstract: As television medical talk shows have become an increasingly popular source of health information, it is important to understand the processes by which people come to accept, at times unconditionally, the information presented by these shows. This study examines the relationship between information exposure, information appraisals, information behaviors, and unconditional acceptance of health information. Results from a survey of 588 women in South Korean indicate that an individual’s appraisal of information as being appropriate or incoherent influences unconditional acceptance of health information. Both types of information appraisals are positively associated with information seeking, which is negatively associated with unconditional acceptance of information. In contrast, neither of these appraisals have an impact on unconditional acceptance via information sharing. Notably, when information appraisals are not considered, information exposure is positively associated with information sharing, which is then positively associated with unconditional acceptance. Implications for health information consumers and practitioners are discussed.

Abstract: This study adopted a “repertoire” approach to interrogate how Haitians used combinations of information sources to meet information insufficiencies following the devastating 2010 earthquake. Using survey data gained in the field starting six weeks after the earthquake (N = 1,808), the study explored what demographic and structural factors predicted the number of sources used and common combinations of information sources following the earthquake. Results showed that Haitians used relatively few sources to seek information in the weeks following the earthquake. Cluster and factor analyses revealed two distinct repertoires of information sources: a “traditional” repertoire of radio, TV, church, and word of mouth; and an “elite” repertoire of newspapers, the Internet, short-message-service (SMS), billboards, and the national police. Education was the strongest predictor of using more information sources, spending more time on information seeking, and the adoption of an elite information source repertoire. Results suggested that greater reliance on a traditional repertoire led to decreased information sufficiency. Implications for practice are specifically directed at international development and aid organizations in planning post-disaster information provision efforts.

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.
