Abstract

This study aims to analyze the influence of medium credibility towards information adoption through information credibility and perceived usefulness. The context of this study is virtual communities dedicated to stock investment. Based on the survey obtained from 333 respondents, our analyses show that medium credibility positively influences information credibility and perceived usefulness. Meanwhile, information credibility and perceived usefulness are the antecedents of information adoption. Additionally, information credibility positively influences perceived usefulness. In particular, it can be concluded that in the context of stock investment virtual communities, medium credibility can influence information adoption through information credibility and perceived usefulness. The theoretical and practical implications of this study, and its limitations are also discussed.
