Social commerce is a growing trend in practice and an important area of research, yet there have been few studies exploring social commerce in the context of social networking sites. This study begins to address this gap in research by identifying salient user beliefs influencing the intention to use a gift-giving service on a social networking site. The recently launched Facebook Gifts service provides a real-world context for the study. We explore the factorial structure of salient user beliefs and examine the relationships between the beliefs and the intention to use Facebook Gifts within a broader nomological network. The implications of our findings for research and practice are discussed. © 2015 IEEE.

Software product line engineering (SPLE) delivers significant economic benefits through planned reuse of the product platform and the effective management of variations across products. However, dynamic market conditions demand the use of software development methods that imbue agility in adapting to changing requirements. This article discusses the integration of SPLE and agile practices and how they relate to the principles from the theory of complex adaptive systems. It provides theoretical grounding for integrating SPLE and agile methods and identifies practices that top management, project managers, and developers can implement in software development organizations. © 2010 IEEE.

The fast growing adoption of smartphones has accentuated the importance of privacy in the context of mobile computing. While most research has focused on general privacy concerns and their impact on intentions to disclose personal information, little is known about how perceptions of a privacy breach affect ongoing relationships between users and mobile providers. To address this gap, we develop a research framework grounded in psychological contract theory. We test this framework with a survey-based study of smartphone users who are presented with a scenario of a privacy breach. We find that perceptions of privacy breach negatively affect trust and commitment and lead to an increase in cynicism. In turn, trust, commitment, and cynicism are highly predictive of smartphone user intention to terminate the relationship with the mobile carrier. We also evaluate the effects of perceived availability of alternatives and contractual lock-in. The nomological framework developed in the current study provides the foundation for further investigation of perceived privacy breach across practically relevant contexts. © 2014 by the Association for Information Systems.

Crowdsourcing has increasingly become a recognized sourcing mechanism for problem-solving in organizations by outsourcing the problem to an undefined entity or the 'crowd'. While the phenomenon of crowdsourcing is not new, it has gained considerable attention in practice due to new crowdsourcing opportunities that have been enabled by new social networking and web 2.0 technologies. While crowdsourcing initiatives provide several benefits for the participants involved, it also poses several novel challenges to effectively manage the crowd. Drawing from the governance mechanisms in the open source literature, we develop an analysis framework to examine the governance mechanisms implemented in three different crowdsourcing initiatives and their impact on the outcome of the initiative.

In this study, we draw from human agency theory to develop the construct of work-related connectivity behavior during non-work time, and conduct a survey to investigate the organizational and individual antecedents of this behavior. Data from 139 full-time working adults in the marketing division of a media organization revealed that work connectivity behavior after-hours is significantly related to the distribution of wireless enabled devices by the organization and organizational norms about connectivity. Our results also indicate that individual characteristics exert different levels of influence depending on the functionality of the device through which connectivity behavior is enacted. Polychronicity was more strongly related to laptop connectivity behavior than to handheld connectivity behavior, whereas role integration preference is only related to handheld connectivity behavior. We also found that organization members were more likely to exhibit continued workplace connectivity behavior during generic "downtime" activities such as traveling or commuting. These results have important theoretical and practical implications. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

Recent measurements of the forward rapidity di-hadron azimuthal angular correlations in proton (deuteron)-nucleus (pA) collisions at RHIC and the saturation-based fits to the data [2,3]have generated much work on understanding the properties of multi-gluon correlators in the high energy limit. Whereas forward rapidity single inclusive particle production in pA collisions probes dipoles (two-point function of Wilson lines, path ordered exponentials of gluon fields, which satisfies the BK-JIMWLK equations), di-hadron production probes quadrupoles, four-point functions of Wilson lines, which are not well-understood. We show that the evolution equation for the quadrupole derived in the Color Glass Condensate (CGC) formalism reduces, in the dilute regime, to the previously known BJKP equation for the energy dependence of four Reggeized gluons. We outline how one may establish a direct connection between the CGC formalism and Reggeized-gluon exchange to high energy processes. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

This article examines how imputed costs influence food consumption. Across one field study and three lab studies, the authors demonstrate that the greater the imputed cost of consumption, the greater is the likelihood of choosing a more indulgent, high-calorie food. Specifically, the authors show that when the imputed costs of payment are higher, such as when making purchases using cash (vs. a credit card) or when pain associated with cash spending is higher, consumers are more likely to purchase and consume higher-calorie foods. The authors provide evidence that consuming indulgent foods actually alleviates the pain of payment and leads to greater positive affect. These findings extend current research by demonstrating how method of payment affects consumption choice. They also provide an alternative explanation of why consumption of indulgent foods increases during economic downturns and why consumers who impute higher costs to payment indulge more. © 2011, American Marketing Association.
