The Distinct Psychology of Smartphone Use: Smartphone-Generated Content As Emotional Expression
We investigate the impact of smartphone usage on user-generated content.

Further, regardless of originating device knowledge, consumers react more favorably to smartphone-generated content because of its heightened emotionality.
