Locked in by social media features? Translating clicks and comments into value

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Snapchat have yielded huge valuations in equity markets and through acquisitions. In this study, we propose that the design features experienced by the platform users are important drivers of value in social media platforms. Also, we suggest a research design to empirically test the link between social media design feature types, the subjective value of the platform as assessed by users, and how platform features are reflected in equity value.
