Electronic Word of Mouth (eWOM) has recently grown exponentially with advances in internet technology. This new information medium has shifted the power of publication from professional publishers to anyone with an internet connection. Users, and particularly consumers, can now add, edit and view the information available through websites using this technology. Those businesses expected to be the most significantly impacted by the information medium are small accommodation providers. Due to this threat many recommendations have been made as to what managers in these businesses should do. However, limited rigorous research has investigated how these managers perceive eWOM and how they are responding to the phenomenon. This research shows that both the perceptions and strategies of regional small accommodation providers are diverse, and specifically that eWOM is perceived both positively and negatively by different managers. The findings of the research should be of foremost interest to accommodation providers, while the implications are also important to management academics, third party website providers and tourism destination managers.

A little over a decade ago Africa was being spoken of in the media as the 'lost' or 'hopeless' continent. Now it has some of the fastest growing economies in the world, largely because of the impact of the BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. In this first book to be written about the BRICS as a collective phenomenon, Pâadraig Carmody reveals how their engagements with Africa, both individually and collectively, are often contradictory, generating new inequalities and potential for development. Crucially, Carmody shows how the geopolitics of the BRICS countries' involvement in Africa is impacted by and impacts upon their international relations more generally, and how the emergence of these economies has begun to alter the very nature ofglobalization, which is no longer purely a Western-led project. -- Publisher website.
Summary of Invisible Influence by Jonah Berger Includes Analysis Preview: Invisible Influence by Jonah Berger is a close examination of the psychology behind behavioral decisions related to identity and branding. Many decisions that the average person makes every day are deeply impacted by factors of which they are seldom aware. A person is likely to understand that others are influenced by suggestion but unlikely to recognize when the same factors can influence a personal decision. Familiarity is a strong motivator for choices. People think more favorably about the things they see frequently even if they are unaware that they have seen them. They are also more likely to conform to group consensus, which can lead to increased popularity of popular products but can cause individuals to avoid contradicting a group that agreed on the wrong choice. Individuals differentiate themselves from others by choosing unfamiliar options intentionally. Privately, the same people will make similar choices as the rest of the group&#8230; PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
