Understanding the Framing of Recommendations

We investigate how recommendation framing affects consumers’ propensity to follow product recommendations. Five studies reveal when and why consumers are more likely to follow recommendations that are framed as user-based (e.g., “People who like this also like”) rather than item-based (e.g., “More products in this category”).
