The Role of Signaling Identity in the Adoption of Personal Technologies

Alessandro Arbore, Isabella Soscia, Richard Bagozzi
2014 Journal of the AIS  
Results support a prominent role for self-identity in predicting intentions to adopt mobile TVs.  ...  This study reinterprets the symbolic dimension of adoption by broadening its scope to include the self-concept.  ...  Existing conceptualizations of symbolic value focus on limited aspects of information appliances and are less applicable to multipurpose innovations adopted in everyday consumer contexts.  ...
