We investigate the effects of source influence and peer referrals on diffusion outcome and address their variations in the case of content crossover.  ...  These effects vary when shared content is linked with an external service by a URL. Source influence and peer referral have a positive impact on cascade size in the content dissemination process.  ...  People also share content others make through social media in forums, blogs, and online social networks.  ...
