Online Reviews: Some Empirical Generalizations

Online consumer reviews (OCR) provide opportunities for consumers to share their experiences and opinions about products/services and are regarded among potential buyers as one of the most trusted sources of information. In this article, we analyze the information content in over 80 million reviews from amazon.com. The database is the universe of all reviews on the site (e.g., books, electronics, music, etc.) and spans over 15 years (1997-2014).
