Abstract
The current study proposes a model to test whether online review valence and attributes have an effect on credibility, and whether regulatory focus and subjective knowledge have moderating effects. Three hundred nineteen university students participated in online experiments with a 2 (positive vs. negative review valence) by 2 (objective vs. subjective review attributes) between subject design. The experiment demonstrated that objective and negative online reviews have a significant positive and negative impact, respectively, on message credibility, which affects review adoption. The results also showed that the moderating effect produced by objective information and a consumer's subjective knowledge is supported. This study contributes to explaining the inconsistent results between review valence/attribute and credibility found in previous studies. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
