The Impact of Intention to Take a Selfie on Variety Seeking Behavior

We investigate how the intention to take a selfie with products influences consumers’ product choices. A series of field and lab experiments show that the selfie-taking intention increases consumers’ variety seeking tendency. This effect is mediated by self-presentational concern and attenuated when people take a group (vs. individual) selfie.
