Title: Incentive and Culture: Shaping Information and Social Dynamics in Online Information Sharing Systems
Abstract: The most revolutionary power of the Internet lies in the way it changes people's collaborative work, aggregating social knowledge at an ever-increasing speed. This trend has been manifested in a variety of social information sharing and augmenting systems, such as Wikipedia, Question-and-Answer (Q&A) forums, and crowdsourcing websites. Understanding the information and social dynamics involved in these systems is crucial to improve their design and truly harness their power. This dissertation is devoted to investigating how two important factors, incentive and culture, significantly and interactively shaped users' information and social behavior in the information-sharing websites I studied.
