“Impact of Social Media on Consumer Buying Behavior”

Non response can occur in two ways – (a) Non-Contact i.e. the inability to contact all the members of the sample and (b) Refusal i.e. the non- response of some or all the items of the measurement instrument. Non- contact errors arise due to the inability to reach the respond- ent. This may be because the respondent is NAH (Not at Home) on the initial call (or call backups) or may have moved away from the area ei- ther permanently or for the pe- riod of the survey. Non- Contact errors can be reduced by careful analysis of the se- lected sample. Refusal arises when the respondent does not respond to a particular item or to multiple items of the ques- tionnaire. Monthly Household Income, Religion, Sex and Pol- itics are topics that may elicit item refusal – normally catego- rized as refused. Don’t Know / Can’t Say (DKCS) refusals arise when the respondent is aware of the item but is unable to provide an adequate answer to the item. Constraints of time on the part of the respondent, a bad experience with some pre- vious interviewer, ill health etc. may be other reason for refusal. Refusal rates could be brought down to manageable levels by giving training to the interviewers and continuously monitoring the investigation process.

The feeling being an outcast, getting socially discriminated and low self-esteem are experiences of disabilities. Thus, it prevents these older adults to participate in communal activities (Hillier 2007; Anastacio et al. 2010). In order to understand how social media technology can support their connectivity, older people need to be more active in the use of communication technology and recommends to use them exhaustively since it is still underutilized. Older adults suffer from night blindness and the like even they use simulated equipment for some scientific devices, still it prevent the persons with disability to stay online. The underutilization is probably because of a number of older adults suffer from functional limitations such as limited cognitive and perceptual abilities, hindering them from using technology, as compared to the younger adults. People can also be limited by factors like blindness, despite assistive technology, even prevent the use of online social networks if no further assistance is available (Cibo 2003;Hutto & Bell 2014).The need to educate these seniors from spending too much time in online networking sites are of tremendous concerns and needed to be investigated.

ANALYSIS OF THE SIGNIFICANCE OF EWOM ON SOCIAL MEDIA FOR COMPANIES

ANALYSIS OF THE SIGNIFICANCE OF EWOM ON SOCIAL MEDIA FOR COMPANIES

In recent years, social media have changed online communication. People share their views on individual companies as well as reviews of various products, and actively engage in discussions. Communication that spreads in this way is referred to as eWOM. The question is how important eWOM on social media can be for companies and what we can conclude based on eWOM. This research study aims to evaluate the signifi cance of eWOM for companies in terms of the connection between eWOM and stock prices. Further, we explore the impact of eWOM on company website traffi c. The research was conducted using a sample of 1,420,000 posts on social media sites mentioning companies that make up the components of the US30 stock market index. The results show that companies in the B2C segment with a higher share of positive posts compared to negative ones have seen a greater increase in stock prices. However, posts on social media mentioning companies in the B2B segment are not connected to the movement of stock prices of these companies. The research also revealed that 3 % of the total traffi c on companies’ websites comes from social media sites. Based on the fi ndings of the research, we can consider eWOM to be of major signifi cance for companies in the B2C segment. These conclusions can be useful in predicting stock prices of particular companies on stock markets based on eWOM.

Why Do Criminals Obey the Law? The Influence of Legitimacy and Social Networks on Active Gun Offenders

Why Do Criminals Obey the Law? The Influence of Legitimacy and Social Networks on Active Gun Offenders

The results also illustrate the influence of social networks on both perceptions of the law and offending. Whereas previous research hypothesizes about the effect of peer influence on perceptions of the law, this study directly measures the effect of various characteristics of the respondent’s ego networks seem to have a negative effect on perceptions of legitimacy, suggesting that closed networks—especially those saturated with criminal alters—decrease perceptions of legitimacy. However, the content of an offender’s social network also appears to have an effect on his perceptions of the law and must be considered in conjunction with density. When criminal alters are present in a non-gang member’s social network, the effect appears to be positive on the individual’s perceptions of the law: having more criminals in one’s network tends to be associated with more favorable opinions of the law, suggesting a sort of “learning from the mistakes” of one’s associates. The same effect appears to occur for gang members in networks where less than 50% of their alters are criminal. The main difference in this network effect is for gang members in highly criminally saturated networks, in which case the effect is negative. Consistent with classic learning theories, the case of “core” gang members suggests that being associated with a large number of criminal alters is related to negative opinions of the law.

The impact of interdependent cross-age peer tutoring on social and mathematics self- concepts

The impact of interdependent cross-age peer tutoring on social and mathematics self- concepts

This paper adds to the limited body of literature and concentrates on investigating the impact of a new peer tutoring framework, ‘Interdependent Cross Age-Peer Tutoring’ (ICAT), on the socio- academic process of learning of self-concepts. ICAT is informed by Social Interdependence Theory, a socio-psychological perspective which aims to make cross-age peer tutoring more cooperative. The intervention took place in 2013 with three schools in England: Two of the schools adopted a pre-post- test quasi experimental design and one school (school C) adopted a single group design. In school A Year 8 students tutored Year 6 (n=201), in school B Year 9 students tutored Year 7 (n=115), and in school C Year 10 students tutored Year 8 (n=102). ICAT was applied once a week for a period of 35- 40 minutes across six weeks, covering school-planned mathematic topics. For school A, which implemented ICAT according to programme specifications, some positive and significant effect sizes were observed.

Investigation of the Effects of Social Self-Confidence, Social Loneliness and Family Emotional Loneliness Variables on Internet Addiction

Investigation of the Effects of Social Self-Confidence, Social Loneliness and Family Emotional Loneliness Variables on Internet Addiction

It can be said that the time spent on the internet has a negative effect on social relationships, and that it leads a person to both as social and emotional loneliness as long as he/she is online. It is thought that the problems in socail and family relations may have an effect on a person’s addiction. Loneliness is the feeling of the individual's lack of personal relationships with others (Fees, Martin, & Poon, 1999; Rook, 1989), and the lack of social networking in relationships. According to Weis (1973), loneliness includes both emotional loneliness and social isolation. Emotional loneliness is that an individual feels nothing for anybody or anything. Social loneliness is the lack of one in which the individual can share his feelings, dreams, ideals and insights. Loneliness is also a multidimensional phenomenon, varying in intensity, and across causes and circumstances (Salimia, 2011). The researches show that loneliness is related to social support (Wright, 2005), lower self-esteem (Levin and Stokas, 1986; Vanhalst, Goossens, Luyckx, Scholte, Engels, 2013), family problems (Wiseman, Mayseles and Sharabany, 2005), personality traits (Saklofske and Yackulic, 1989), social skills (Ponzetti and Cate, 1988), interpersonal trust (Rotenberg, 1994), self-criticism (Wiseman, 1997) poorer academic performance (Benner, 2011), and internet addiction (Huan, Ang, Chye, 2014; Özdemir, Kuzucu, Ak, 2014).

Impact of Facebook as a Social Media Platform on Brand Image of Franchise Restaurants in DHA Karachi

Impact of Facebook as a Social Media Platform on Brand Image of Franchise Restaurants in DHA Karachi

Restaurants should identify positive messages of customers and recruit advocates to their brand to increase positive social buzz about their restaurant. They should provide instant feedback channels to their customers to reduce bad reviews on Facebook. Because most of the customers post these reviews when they are unable to find a way to voice themselves. Therefore, managers of the restaurant should ask their customers about their experience and their suggestions. Also, the response to the complaints should be quick, since this shows the customers that they have been heard and might not turn into a bad online review. Restaurants should respond to reviews on social media both good and bad by thanking customers who posted good reviews and solve the issues of the customers who posted bad reviews. As they might update their negative review into a favorable one after their issues have been solved. A social marketing strategy should be built by restaurants to show people on social media about their original and authentic brand image. Also, restaurants should participate in online conversations about them to address the complaints before they turn into a bad review.

Investigation of Social Media Addiction of High School Students

In the study, it was determined that there was statistically significant difference in social media addiction status of high school students according to type of high school variable. This significant difference was found to be between the C Vocational and Technical High School with low academic achievement and the A High School with high academic achievement level in favor of C Vocational and Technical High School. In the factor of occupation, mood regulation and conflict, a significant difference was found in favor of C Vocational and Technical High School with low academic achievement. It could be stated that the lower the academic success, the more social media addiction could be. Mingle and Adams (2015) stated that the increasing use of social media by university students and long hours spent on these platforms decreased academic performance. In their study, Wei and Wang (2011) found that students' academic efficiency decreased as a result of using social media.
