1. Hu, Yifeng. and Sundar, S. Shyam. "Doctors vs. Laypersons on Blogs vs. Bulletin Boards vs. Websites vs. Homepages: The Effects of Online Health Sources on Credibility and Behavioral Intentions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 21, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-06-27 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Based on a typology of online communication sources, this research examines the influences of original and selecting sources on perceived credibility of—and behavioral intentions toward—health information. A large 2 × 2 × 5 full factorial online experiment revealed that respondents (N = 555) were more likely to take action based on the information sourced from a website than from a blog or a homepage. The effect was mediated by perceived level of gatekeeping and perceived information completeness. A two-way interaction between original and selecting sources was mediated by perceived appropriateness of source placement such that information on a website was perceived as more credible if attributed to a doctor than to a layperson while information on a homepage was perceived as slightly more credible if attributed to a layperson. This interaction differed as a function of message. Practical implications for online health planners, physicians, users and policy makers are discussed.
