When Intention to Share Increases Variety-Seeking: the Role of Self-Enhancement

Sharing cues are ubiquitous on all types of online platforms. This research investigates a simple yet critical question: can sharing cues alter one’s decision-making? We propose that sharing cues could activate consumers’ intention to share which in turn increases their variety seeking choices, especially for non-experts and for non-conspicuous products.
