  1. Hello everyone! as promised I thought i'd post just a summary of some of the findings for those who are curious. The research focused on five objectives; Investigate the attitudes towards seeking opinions of products and services online; Discover the main factors behind spreading opinions online; To determine attitudes towards availability of opinions online; To see if there is more usage of online communication that traditional means of spreading word-of-mouth; To assess if there are still trust issues with eletronic Word-Of-Mouth. It was found that trust issues have been ironed out however there is still some issues to be dealt with. There was not more usage of online communication than traditional means however it has certainly created another medium for people to interact with each other. There were mixed attitudes towards the availability of opinions online, there was many aware of review sites however they did not use them intentionally, instead they were thought of a by-product of a search engine. It was found people were spreading opinions online due to being happy with the product of service, (previous studies have been aimed at negative word-of-mouth.) Generally attitudes towards seeking opinions of products and services online was one of convenience. Although there was cases of consumers going out of their way to search for product reviews, most would only do so if they are already on the internet. Overall the internet has made it easier for people to get a wider selection of opinions however, from this research, it does not seem to have encouraged the spreading of word-of-mouth, rather it is just being used as another medium of communication.

  10. if they are to put benches in "female" shops they should have them in the "male" shops too! my goodness, had to stand around for at least an hour whilst the boyfriend discussed guitars at the counter, remembering to make the appropriate ooooh's and aaaaah's when it was needed.

  20. James for the most i agree with you, however its not only religion that teaches children to believe in something without proof, to be topical christmas and st nicholas. but children like the thought of magic, and fairies, you cant expect them to be sinicle about the world from day one, it wouldnt be fair to them, thats something they need to grow into.
  21. i think its alot to do with where you post, if you are going to post in places such as the nothlink discussion then you are bound to have people with very strong views which will make it clear to you, however if you post in somewhere more lighthearted the posts surrounding yours will follow suit. i dont think its anything to do with people being spitfull, just opinionated
