Brand Communication on Social Media: Effects of Non-Persuasive Self-Disclosure on Consumer Perceptions

We investigate a non-persuasive brand’s self-disclosure tactic on social media. Across one field experiment and two lab studies in three countries, we show that depending on brand anthropomorphism (realized by individual trait, brand characteristic and thinking style), this tactic can cause the priming and reverse priming effects on consumer perceptions.
