K13. When Does Humor Increase Sharing?

Are consumers more likely to share content (stories, social media posts, etc.) when it is humorous? Not always. Although adding humor increases the likelihood that consumers share negative content (e.g., embarrassing stories, complaints, etc.), adding humor does not increase the likelihood of sharing positive content (e.g., happy stories, praise, etc.).
