You Didn’T Take My (Uncertain) Advice? Examining the Effects of Confidence and Recommendation Outcomes on Recommender Preferences

Recommendations constitute public commitment to a product. Nevertheless, we demonstrate that recommenders reduce future choice away from their recommended product if their advice is not followed (unfulfilled recommendation). This switching occurs when consumers recommend with less-than-full confidence, leading them to use others’ choices to make inferences about the recommended product.
