1Wang, G.A. ; Du, QS. ; Fan, W. (Hrsg.): Hong, H. ; Ye, Q.: Crowd characteristics and crowd wisdom : evidence from an online investment community.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 71(2020) no.4, S.423-435.
Abstract: Fueled by the explosive growth of Web 2.0 and social media, online investment communities have become a popular venue for individual investors to interact with each other. Investor opinions extracted from online investment communities capture "crowd wisdom" and have begun to play an important role in financial markets. Existing research confirms the importance of crowd wisdom in stock predictions, but fails to investigate factors influencing crowd performance (that is, crowd prediction accuracy). In order to help improve crowd performance, our research strives to investigate the impact of crowd characteristics on crowd performance. We conduct an empirical study using a large data set collected from a popular online investment community, StockTwits. Our findings show that experience diversity, participant independence, and network decentralization are all positively related to crowd performance. Furthermore, crowd size moderates the influence of crowd characteristics on crowd performance. From a theoretical perspective, our work enriches extant literature by empirically testing the relationship between crowd characteristics and crowd performance. From a practical perspective, our findings help investors better evaluate social sensors embedded in user-generated stock predictions, based upon which they can make better investment decisions.
2Chen, H. ; Beaudoin, C.E. ; Hong, H.: Teen online information disclosure : empirical testing of a protection motivation and social capital model.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 67(2016) no.12, S.2871-2881.
Abstract: With bases in protection motivation theory and social capital theory, this study investigates teen and parental factors that determine teens' online privacy concerns, online privacy protection behaviors, and subsequent online information disclosure on social network sites. With secondary data from a 2012 survey (N?=?622), the final well-fitting structural equation model revealed that teen online privacy concerns were primarily influenced by parental interpersonal trust and parental concerns about teens' online privacy, whereas teen privacy protection behaviors were primarily predicted by teen cost-benefit appraisal of online interactions. In turn, teen online privacy concerns predicted increased privacy protection behaviors and lower teen information disclosure. Finally, restrictive and instructive parental mediation exerted differential influences on teens' privacy protection behaviors and online information disclosure.
