D1. When Intention to Share on Social Media Increases Variety-Seeking: the Role of Self-Enhancement

This research investigates how calls to sharing online affect decisions. It shows that consumers would seek variety to self-enhance when they intent to share with others. This effect is stronger when the consumption is non-conspicuous and when consumers are non-experts. Six studies using lab and field data support these effects.
