We study how the perceived crowdedness of the environment affects WOM sharing. We show that crowded places trigger feelings of lack of control which make consumers more likely to engage in WOM in order to restore control. This finding has relevant implications for real-time sharing on social media.

We study how the perceived crowdedness of the environment affects WOM sharing. We show that crowded places trigger feelings of lack of control which make consumers more likely to engage in WOM in order to restore control. This finding has relevant implications for real-time sharing on social media.
