Despite the potential benefits that online banking offers consumers, it has low adoption rate. We systematically review online banking adoption literature to propose two research models of factors affecting pre-adoption and post-adoption of the online banking. To test our proposed models, we applied a two-stage random-effects meta-analytic structur...

The objective of this paper is to identify factors that influence the effectiveness of electronic word of mouth (eWOM) message on the consumers' perception of adopting products/services offered through self-service technology and brick-and-mortar channels. We draw on "social communication framework" and "Grounded Theory Literature Review Method" to...

E-Government is envisioned to improve the operational efficiency of government service delivery. A recent United Nations (2010) e-Government Survey shows that within the past decade governments around the world have increasingly adopted information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve their service delivery. Nonetheless, scholars are sce...

The effective sharing of organizational knowledge is particularly relevant for multinational corporations, where firm-specific tacit knowledge (know-how) is considered a source of competitive advantage for subsidiaries participating in a global strategy. To that end, multinational corporations (MNCs) are asking their IT departments to support both...

A common assumption in prior research on social networking sites (SNS) has been that users' orientations toward SNS use are positioned somewhere along a bipolar, univalent continuum, stretching from negative to positive orientation. However, considering recent findings unfolding the intricacy and variety of SNS use patterns, such a linear conceptua...

The importance of online review valence is a subject of debate among scholars. Prior studies mostly assumed valence as a “peripheral” cue derived from online review surface features (e.g., star ratings). This assumption has important implications as it restricts the negativity bias effects to a certain group of consumers who lack pertinent prior ex...
Article
Prior studies have primarily used "variable-centered" perspectives to identify factors underlying user responses to social networking site (SNS) addiction, their predictors and outcomes. This paper extends this perspective by taking a person-centered approach to examine (1) the prototypical subpopulations (profiles) of users' extent of SNS addictio...

Recommender systems have become a ubiquitous part of modern web applications. They help users discover new and relevant items. Today's users, through years of interaction with these systems have developed an inherent understanding of how recommender systems function, what their objectives are, and how the user might manipulate them. We describe thi...

Managerial ambidexterity is an important precursor to managerial seizing ability. However, ambidexterity can impose substantial costs. Yet information systems may help reduce these costs. We develop a model that includes an inverted U-shaped relationship between managerial ambidexterity and seizing ability. We propose that a manager's effective use...

The large volume of contents on online review platforms can cognitively overload consumers. It’s therefore crucial for online review platforms to present information cues and features to help consumers make effective assessments of online reviews faster. Currently, major deficiencies in the design of major online review platforms hinder this object...

Article
Full-text available
As information systems (IS) have evolved, more sophisticated meshing of their positive and negative implications has emerged, leaving users with an increasingly ambivalent experience. Given the discomfort of ambivalence, users intrinsically engage in coping responses with different degrees of cognitive flexibility. This paper investigates ambivalen...

While negativity bias has been observed across many contexts, the consensus regarding its presence in the effects of electronic word of mouth (eWoM) reviews on consumers’ judgments is equivocal. Despite this equivocality, there has been a limited attempt to identify the conditions and the pertinent factors that alter the negativity bias in the effe...

Full-text available
Purpose Extant research has shown the prevalence of social networking site (SNS) addiction and provided evidence for its negative consequences. Given such consequences, it is conceivable that some users decide to discontinue their SNS use in response to SNS addiction. This paper examines key mechanisms that translate SNS addiction into discontinuan...

Recommender systems have become a mainstay of modern inter-net applications. They help users identify products to purchase on Amazon, movies to watch on Netflix and songs to enjoy on Pandora. Indeed, they have become so commonplace that users, through years of interactions with these systems, have developed an inherent understanding of how recommen...

Unplanned (i.e., spontaneous) online behaviors such as impulsive use of social networking sites (SNS) and swearing on SNS are prevalent and can adversely affect users and society. Drawing on dual system theory, this paper conceptualizes and empirically investigates the etiology of such behaviors. Results of two studies (n 1 =295 SNS users, focuses...

Any decision process deals with two different concerns as its cornerstones, evaluating the alternatives and ranking them based on their performances. In any decision process, the former phase is usually the premise of the latter one. Alternatives’ evaluation is the concept that largely depends on the experts and their expertise, which increase unce...
