报告内容摘要

Social media evolve quickly as new types of social media are released. Concurrent with the rapid growth of emerging social media, people often move from a previously popular technology to the latest application. Built upon the push–pull–mooring framework, this study explores the factors that affect user switching from incumbent social media to a newly emerging one. The influences of these factors on user switching intention are also examined. Low social presence is posited to form the push effect of incumbent social media, whereas larger referent network size and relative ease of use work together to shape the pull effect of newly emerging social media. Furthermore, adopting the status quo bias theory and habit literature as theoretical lense, affective commitment, switching costs, and habit are regarded as important sources of inertia. Inertia is presumed to play a key role in mooring effects because it negatively affects switching intention and attenuates the main effects of pull and push factors.An empirical study of 239 users who use blog and microblogging services concurrently provides general support for our hypotheses. Theoretical and practical implications of this study are discussed.
