I Care About Why You Share: Inferences About Sharing Motives Influence Observers’ Engagement in Similar Experiences

We identify factors that drive different inferences about why others share about their experiences and demonstrate that perceiving others to share for extrinsically-motivated (vs. intrinsically-motivated) reasons decreases observers’ desire to consume similar experiences. This occurs because inferences about sharers’ motives influence observers’ own perceptions of how others might view them.
