Q6. Online Social Status Predicts Subjective Well-Being: a Two Population Study

Through three studies across two populations, we identified a novel construct: online social status. Online social status is positively related to consumers’ subjective well-being (Study 1 and Study 2). Additionally, only when online and offline identities were highly overlapped, online social status is related to subjective well-being (Study 3).
