The Weibo of Desire: Accelerating Consumerism in the Social Media Era
This study explores the role of Weibo, the Chinese Twitter, in constructing consumers’ desires and promoting consumerism. Content analysis is applied to over 250 consumption related Weibo postings. Findings show that through idealizing and fantasizing, consumers construct and project their desires by social media which significantly boosts consumerism.
