Impact Of Electronic Word-Of-Mouth To Consumer Adoption Process In The Online Discussion Forum: A Simulation Study

Aussadavut Dumrongsiri
2010 Zenodo  
Web-based technologies have created numerous opportunities for electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) communication. There are many factors that affect customer adoption and decisionmaking process.  ...  Using a discrete-time event simulation to simulate a diffusion model along with a consumer decision model, the study shows the effect of each factor on adoption of opinions on on-line discussion forum.  ...  This has led to the creation of a diverse online word-of-mouth communities (online forums), where individuals exchange experiences and opinions on a variety of topics ranging from products and services  ...

An Agent-Based Model of Motor Insurance Customer Behaviour in the UK with Word of Mouth

Rei England, Iqbal Owadally, Douglas Wright
2022 Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation  
Word-of-mouth networks allow information to spread between customers. In this paper we build an agent-based model with two types of agents: customers and insurers.  ...  We find that the existence of the network acts as a persistent memory, causing a systemic bias whereby an insurer's early reputation achieved by random chance tends to persist and leads to unequal market  ...  However, customer and have been exchanging word-of-mouth information every year, reinforcing their established opinion by repeating it between themselves.  ...
