How Much Is a Like Worth? a Field Experiment of Facebook Pages

We conduct a field experiment to examine customers’ willingness to like a company’s Facebook page, and whether likes translate into improved customer value for the firm. Our results suggest that Facebook likes are easy to acquire and that page likes translate into measurable real world changes in consumer behavior.
