How does psychological distance influence the way we negatively rate experiences online?

Drawing on self-distancing theory and construal level theory, this study from Jürgen Neumann (Paderborn University), Dominik Gutt (Erasmus University Rotterdam), and Dennis Kundisch (Paderborn University) delves into the complexities of review behavior. By analyzing data from a large review platform, they found that spatial distance amplifies negativity in ratings, while temporal distance mitigates it.

How does review transparency impact your online experience? Recent research from Lianlian (Dorothy) Jiang (University of Houston), T. Ravichandran (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)), and Jason Kuruzovich (RPI) analyzes the effects of review moderation transparency on review volume, length, and sentiment. Find out why increasing transparency might not always lead to more thorough reviews.

Anol Bhattacherjee (University of South Florida) investigates the roles of claim-source credibility, fact-checker credibility, and attitude strength and how they have inconsistent effects on fact-checking. Bhattacherjee conducted two online experiments involving over 900 participants to discover how these factors interacted with COVID-19-related misinformation.

Researchers Chao Ding (The University of Hong Kong), Wael Jabr (Pennsylvania State University), and Hong Guo (Arizona State University) utilized a game theoretical model of electoral competition to analyze the extent to which political parties adapt their messages for various media. Their research looks at citizens, media outlets, and social media influencers, and it provides insights on polarization and information distortion.
