Abstract

Consumers are increasingly using social media (SM) as an important source of information and as a way to communicate about clothing. SM platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube have already been evaluated as successful business take-off tools by numerous clothing brands such as Burberry, Nordstrom, and ASOS (Kim & Ko, 2012). While personality differences have been examined in relation to SM use, one area that remains unexplored is the influence of personality traits on information exchange and dialogue about clothing (Hart et al., 2015). The current study addresses this issue by linking personality traits to clothing communication via social media (CCSM) measured by SM usage for the clothing product category.
